Do you enjoy center time? Some teachers love it, and some do not. Whether you love it or not, one thing we can agree on is that setting up clear expectations for center time is so important. Just like setting up rules and expectations for the classroom and playground, defining how this time should go in the classroom is essential.
Today I have a centers expectations printable booklet to share with you. This is a simple booklet to read with students to start the dialogue of what the expectations are during center time.
The booklet is 12 pages long and you can print it in color or black and white. The booklet has general rules, such as staying in centers, using materials the correct away, and using quiet voices.
On pages where the picture shows correct behavior, there is a checkmark. On pages where they are doing the wrong behavior, there is an X.
To put the booklet together, follow these steps:
- Print the pages on copy paper.
- Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut the pages in half (on the dotted line.)
- Put the pages in order.
- Staple the pages together on the left side.
