I decided on 4 centers
1. Listening Centers
2. iPad Center
3. Activity Center
4. Table Talk
For the time being, I created labels for each center that I have taped on my whiteboard. I wrote the students names under what center they were assigned to. I used my cell phone to set a timer for each session. For the first week, we rotated after 5 minutes. I wanted to have time to explain each center and then chat with the kids after we were all done to get their feedback. One major tip: make sure the kids are familiar with the app or activity before you assign that as a center. That way they don't interrupt your table talk time.
Center 1: Listening Center!
For the listening center, I have the students listen with headphones to a powerpoint presentation I created. The presentation has 65 slides of words that contain their sound in all positions. I had no clue you could record your own voice onto a powerpoint slide!
Center 2: iPad Center
Center 3: Activity Center
This week I used "Say and Do" Artic game board for my activity center. We have played this game before, so the kids knew exactly what to do in this center.
Center 4: Table Talk
During Table Talk Center, I work one on one with a student. This gives me time to work specifically on their goals and take my data points.
I also created a Speech Sound Counter worksheet for the kids to take with them to each center. They set a goal and write in tally marks each time they practice their target. At table time, I tally for them so they have less distractions. (This week, only 2 centers had speech production to tally. The students do not practice their sounds at the listening center and the iPad Center was oral motor exercises)
Overall, I think it went over very well. The kids told me "That was fun!" (yay!) and they got to try new things! I would recommend trying them in your room (if you have the space!) Any ideas or suggestions? I'll be posting new activities as we do them in our centers!
