When something works you can tell. I have been noticing what the class looks and sounds like when something is working. The students are engaged and excited about what they are doing. I like these word centre activities because you can have the students pick words at their personal level. We picked words from our social studies unit, the big book of the week, and our word wall. As you can see from the pictures, the students loved the activities and were on task for 15 minutes. That included a quick pair share of what they thought of their centre. You can get these great activities from Miss Nelson here.
