If you’ve ever been curious about classroom learning centers, the new year is a perfect time to give them a try. Learning centers add an exciting dimension to classrooms by offering a variety of activities, while allowing students to work either independently or in small groups. These specialized stations not only encourage individual responsibility and teamwork, they also help students learn respect for property and for one another. In addition, learning centers have been especially successful for those who thrive in a hands-on environment.
