Need a quick, easy way to display your center groups and rotate students through each center? This center rotation wheel has been SO effective in my classroom; students always know where they are supposed to go, where they will go next, and best of all…it’s easy for me to change!
This product will be downloaded as a ZIP file with the editable PowerPoint and a PDF with instructions. You must have PowerPoint to edit the text of the center rotation wheels!
This product is EDITABLE to a certain extent. You are not able to edit the images of the centers…but you ARE able to type in the names of your centers to match each image. None of the center names are pre-typed, so that you can type what you would normally name each center in your classroom. I did include a list of “center naming inspiration” within the PDF if you need it.
This product includes 24 different center wheel options, so whether you have 3 different rotations or 8, you should be able to find what’s best for you! I tried to include as many combinations of the different centers as possible, however, if you purchase this product and are not able to find the perfect combination of graphics on one wheel to match the centers you use in your classroom, please just let me know and I’d be happy to add it to the file! If you use Daily 5, there is a wheel that will work for you already included.
This wheel is super easy to put together; just type in your centers (use any font you'd like!), print the center wheel, and print the smaller wheel. You will need a brad to fasten the wheels together and ensure that they spin. The smaller wheel in the middle is what you will use to identify your center groups. I name my groups by color, so I simply print and color in each section of the wheel (see preview). You could also insert small text boxes and type in your group names before printing this part.
If you do decide to purchase this product, please leave feedback! Not only is it valuable to me, but you will also earn TpT credits to apply toward your future purchases!
