Color Your Classroom VII: A Curriculum Guide for Learning Centers.
Mississippi Materials & Resource Center, Gulfport.
This guide provides illustrated examples of classroom learning centers designed for use with migrant students. Designating learning centers in the classroom is an effective way to introduce, develop, and reinforce skills in an enjoyable way. The learning centers described in this guide can be made from: (1) fabric boards (large); (2) fabric boards (small); (3) heavy corrugated cardboard, wood, or form board; and (4) real life objects. Spaces can be divided into mini centers, and can be separated by room dividers and storage pieces. Learning activities address various reading and math skills which are correlated with the numerical coding of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System Skills Lists. Many of the learning center activities contain task cards or patterns suitable for reproduction for classroom use. The purpose of each learning center is described and materials needed to construct the center are listed. Directions are provided for constructing the center, as well as for students completing the learning center activities. Activities emphasize functional skills such as using a telephone directory, using a bus schedule, ordering from a catalog, reading the classified ads, addressing envelopes, and drawing a floor plan. The document contains numerous graphics and illustrations. (KS)
