Center management can be a for real challenge in any classroom. It took me years and years to find a system that worked for me and the kids. Ya’ll…centers used to keep me up at night…I have random white eyebrows and I’m sure they were caused by the stress and fear of trying to make centers run effectively and not requiring me to be at school until 12:46 am every Friday!
Enter the center wheel. The wheel is the heart of our center system. It’s what keeps us moving and on track. It’s 100% visual so it’s super kid friendly and it is so teacher friendly because I don’t have to tell anyone what center to go to! The wheel does it for me!
