What is a Grab and Go Center?
The idea for Grab and Go centers came about as I was trying to find the best way to incorporate meaningful centers into my primary classroom. I needed for the centers to be low prep, organized, easily accessible, reusable, and kid friendly.
Once created these centers will keep your students actively involved reviewing skills they need without you spending your nights and weekends searching for ideas!
Here is what makes these centers perfect for your primary classroom:
Each center is stored in a small plastic pencil case. They are small, durable, and cheap! Because they are all the same size, they fit perfectly on a bookshelf without taking up too much of your valuable space. Because they come in different colors you can choose to color code them according to the skill or concept reviewed.
Each center can be printed on card stock, laminated, and reused year after year. Once created, you just have to make that center available to your students . I keep all of my centers stored in a cabinet. Once I teach the skill, I just take the center from my cabinet and make it available to my students.
Each Grab and Go center comes with convenient kid-friendly labels that allow your students to independently complete the center. No more interrupting your small group to ask what to do! The side label contains the name of the center and a picture representing whether the center is an individual center or a center that requires a partner (Some of the games require two people). There is an outside top label containing the same information. The inside top label contains the materials needed and the directions written in kid-friendly language.
Grab and Go Centers are perfect if you have limited space in your classroom to set up centers. Rather than have students move to a center in the room, they can just grab their center and take it back to their seat. The box already contains everything they need!
Most centers come with a recording sheet and answer key. This gives you the option of having your students check over their work or turn their recording sheet in.
