***HUGE UPDATE Nov. 4, 2014***
Make sure to read all about how I use this set in my blog post!!! You will get the complete idea before you purchase!! :)
Make Your Rotations ROCK!
This set can be used and customized to fit your exact needs!! I included photos and examples to give you an idea of how I use it in my own classroom. Since there is an EDITABLE file in Powerpoint included in this set, the possibilities are endless!! The Rotations Board basically is the CONTROL BOARD. Everything my students need to know is on that board. It honestly runs my room during rotations! I couldn't live without it!!!
The way I set my rotations board up is to display what groups the kids are in and in what order they come to me and do their independent rotation. During their independent rotations, they use the Rotations Board to find what their rotation is for that given day. With the matching rotation labels, it is easy for them to locate the tub or area designated for each rotation. I also use the board to show literature circle groups.
As you can see in the photos, I use post-its for the kids names and organization. This is so key for me in making it super simple to move around kids as well as group them with other kids that will make sure they are all set up for success.
As with anything you start in your room, I modeled, modeled, modeled! After breaks, I sometimes model again! :) This makes sure everyone is ready to go. My 2nd graders have always done really well with this starting in the very first month of school. I looped this year so my kids were already ready to go.
I hope this Rotations Board Set helps making your rotations ROCK!!!
