Start A Fire

My literacy centers are a core part of our kindergarten schedule. They are active literacy centers that keep us on our toes and working so that I can work with small groups. Today, let me share my kindergarten retell literacy center directions, expectations and a list of the 20 stories that make up this year-long center in our classroom. Most of the stories that I place into the retell literacy center are pretty famous (or at least well known within the world of kindergarten teachers) but…
