Reading based learning center activities

This collection from the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) offers preschool and  elementary teachers a series of resources for implementing reading-based  learning center activities. In addition to the Learning Center Activities (which can be implemented immediately in classrooms), teachers from grades Pre-K-5 can also access a Teacher Resource Guide and a Professional Development Video for each grade band that offers important insights on differentiated instruction and how to use the Learning Center materials.
