Increase Learning and Save Time with Independent Pre-K & Kindergarten Centers

Does planning or changing centers take up too much of your time? Do you feel like a referee for your students or a constant problem solver?

I can help you make the switch to free-flowing centers. It will change your teacher life and help your students be more independent than ever!

In this webinar, you’ll learn all about how math and literacy centers can be taken to the next level when we get rid of the rotations and the timers.

Pre-K and Kindergarten centers can be even more engaging when students can choose their activity like this magnet match.

One of my favorite things about free-flowing centers is the time it saves me! I used to change out my centers all at once which meant tons of prep and time. And of course, this was usually on Fridays before I left for the weekend.

Not to mention, I was then trying to introduce ALL of those new centers to my kids in one day!

Fast forward and I now change centers without a set schedule, though it’s usually 1-2 times a week. But I do NOT change them all at once. Some stay out a long time while others rotate in and out.

My center planning time is now less AND my students have a stronger understanding of the available centers. This is because I’m not giving them too much information at one time.

Color coding activities and storing them so students can see them clearly is an important part of free-flowing centers.

For teachers, this way of running Pre-K and Kindergarten centers allows us to have more meaningful time and freedom with individual students and small groups – getting even further than if we were timer-bound.

Plus – you’ll see management issues improve when it comes to keeping everyone on track and you can still use your curriculum and required centers.

Letting students flow freely in and out of centers increases learning and allows for choice and higher engagement!
