A valuable resource designed to give all children at the emergent and early reading levels purposeful, yet playful, activities that relate to the modeled, shared, and guided reading books used in classrooms.

Literacy Centers play an important role in helping students to become fluent readers and writers. They provide a time in which teachers can observe and teach small groups of children or assess their students one at a time. In addition, the text invites students to interact independently and collaboratively with books and other materials.

The activities featured in Literacy Centers for the Primary Classroom are organized into six centers that form a critical part of a balanced literacy approach:
Letter Play Center: Students begin to notice the function and form of letters by interacting with and manipulating the letters of the alphabet in an informal, play-like manner.
Word Play Center: Students learn how words work, and how their patterns, chunks, and context all related to the whole of the text.
Sentence Play Center: Students absorb not only the form and function of sentence structure, but also its meaning.
Oral Language Center: Students engage in listening and speaking activities in a way that promotes language development.
Writing Center: Students create short, meaningful messages that apply directly to wide variety of everyday activities.
Reading Center: Students practice behaviors and strategies that are taught in other parts of the reading curriculum.
