This is just what you need-a week’s worth of literacy centers to keep your class engaged while enabling you to work with your small groups!

I Am Not A Spider! is part of my Literacy Center Series for Emergent Readers. The student story is about spiders who are wearing Halloween disguises and deny that they are actually spiders. These centers provide meaningful engagement and follow-up to the story.

The reading foundational skills are addressed through activities designed to develop
• Phonemic awareness
• Phonic skills
• Reading and writing of high frequency words, all with engaging illustrations to support the emerging reading and writing process

Of the 10 centers in this resource, 4 of them are used each day throughout the week. These centers are of the type that children enjoy repeating and continue to use very productively.

The Daily Centers are:
• Writing the Room
• Reading and Writing Fluency Triangles
• Concentration Game
• I Can Spy the Words

The Project Center is also a daily center, but the content changes each day. During this time, the child completes one activity each day within the rotation time block. These 6 centers are in black and white, ready for you to run off as class sets.

The 6 Project Centers are:
• Emergent Build-A-Word Reading Book
• Poetry Book Page
• Retelling Story Headband craftivity
• Word and Picture Initial Sound Match
• Fill-in-the-Blank-missing words from the story
• I Can Label It!-thematic picture

In addition, 3 bonus items are included in this pack:
• Pocket Chart Pictures, in color, for the Emergent Reader
• Pocket Chart Pictures, in color, for the Poem
• 5 Little Spiders poem, in color, for the Class Poetry Book

As teachers, we know how important it is for students to form meaningful connections to the stories they read and hear. These activities are designed to provide that support for story content, literary elements and reading fluency. These activities can also assist in the development of phonemic awareness, as well as help develop an understanding of vocabulary, syntax, and story structure. There is so much to love about emergent readers!

You will really appreciate the versatility for these activities to be used in any number of ways, such as centers, small groups, and intervention, as well as independent work.
