Differentiated literacy centers for first grade- course completion

I chose to implement differentiated literacy centers in my classroom this year. My centers are based on the spelling patterns and grammar rules we are learning about each week. I started by introducing two centers that were tiered by ability level.

 

I feel like this change has had a positive impact on my students. It provided  more opportunities to reach all the different spelling levels in my classroom by using this strategy.

 

I will use this strategy again next year as well. I will continue to try to differentiate other literacy centers not only by level but also by interest.

 

I joined the Professional Development professional group on the Ning. I was able to establish some contacts to help with Professional Development opportunities at the Primary School.

Did you feel that developing tiered plans was difficult or an easy addition to what yo were already doing?
