PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Differentiated ELA Centers with EASY Teacher Prep!

This pack was created to support independent activities for the literacy block. It contains 9 differentiated activities that are slightly different than my other ELA tasks. Instead of creating one task with several different level of difficulty cards, the activities are differentiated by either the complexity of the recording sheet and task or by the actual readability of the task. I made this change to help teachers create meaningful, differentiated centers, but requiring less time to prepare and create! Another new feature I added to this pack is a printable resource poster for EACH center! The centers include:

• Swimming with Complete Sentences- The student will read the words on the card and match it onto a complete or incomplete sentence card. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet requires students to identify complete or incomplete sentence. The second recording sheet (front and back) requires students to identify and correct incomplete sentences.
• Apple Endings- Students draw cards with sentences that do not have end marks and match the card to another card with the correct end mark. The first recording sheet requires students to write in the correct, missing punctuation. The second recording sheet requires students to cut and paste sentences into the correct type of sentence (interrogative, declarative, exclamatory, and imperative).
• Carnival Word Sorts- Students sort word cards as either nouns or verbs. The first recording sheet requires students to identify nouns and verbs. The second recording sheet just adds a back to the first recording sheet. It requires students to identify nouns and verbs, then use three of each in a sentence.
• Plural Noun Plays- Students sort words cards as singular nouns and plural nouns. The first recording sheet requires students to identify and write singular and plural nouns. The second recording sheet (front and back) requires students to identify singular and plural nouns and then use three of each in a sentence.
• Bubble Dot Decoding- Students practice decoding words with common vowel teams. They will select a picture card, then mark the correct word naming the picture on the recording sheet using a bingo dauber. There are two versions of the recording sheet. The first recording sheet only uses the first two pages of cards. The second recording sheet includes a third page of cards. These cards (eight, show, bread, a queen) are ODDBALL words and do not fit the pattern. Students will need to color in the bubbles with oddball words BLUE.
• Be a Literary Reading Detective- Students read a literary passage and then can either answer questions about the passage, or can use question stem cards, to create and answer their own questions about the passage. There are three levels of the passage (Late 1st , Early 2nd , Mid 2nd ) and two different versions of the recording sheet.
• Be an Informational Reading Detective- Students read an informational passage and then can either answer questions about the passage, or can use question stem cards, to create and answer their own questions about the passage. There are three levels of the passage (Late 1st,, Early 2nd, Mid 2nd ) and two different versions of the recording sheet.
• Falling into Main Idea- Students read cards with passages on them and determine the main idea. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet requires students choose the main idea from a multiple choice bank. The second recording sheet requires students to write in the main idea.
• Main Idea Mishap- Students read cards with passages on them and determine the detail that does not belong. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet requires students to choose the detail that does not belong from a multiple choice bank. The second recording sheet requires students to write in the detail that does not belong.

Teacher’s Helpers Included!

This is an additional pack of teacher’s helpers to make your literacy block as smooth as possible! Included in this file is:

• Center Icons for Rotations or Bin Labels- These are square labels that match each of the centers’ cover sheets. These are perfect for center rotations or for labeling bins.
• Center/ Work Stations Menu or Cover Sheet- I created this sheet for students to check off as they complete the center/work station each day. They can also be used as a daily or weekly reflection piece for students.
• Student’s Reflection Rubric- At the end of the week, students have a simple rubric to complete that allows them to reflect on their effort and understanding.
• Simple Grading Sheet- This is a simple sheet for teachers to staple to the top of all of one student’s centers. There is a checklist of all the centers and teachers can score all of the centers for one student. There are four checklists to a sheet.
• Teacher Check Sheet- Editable checklist to mark off if students have turned in all the centers in this pack.
