Don't buy it for your Nook. All the charts are in small print and can't be made big enough to read. You are better off buying the book. Same for the other book by Diller.
I am a sixth year teacher. I currently teach kindergarten and have been wanting to move towards a more center-based model, giving students control over their own learning. This book lays it out for you and makes it easy to start and easy to keep going! It gives center ideas that you never really realized could be centers. It offers great, general ideas that fit into any classroom. Philosophies are shared, tips are given, and common teacher concerns are addressed. The only thing I think is missing is addressing/showing readers what lesson plans could or should look like. Overall, it's an excellent read that will make you want to start work stations today!
This book is one of the best professional books I have read. It is easy to read, has lots of pictures and makes you want to use it right away. I highly recomend it to anyone who is teaching K-5.
This is one of the best Center/Work Station books for the primary grades that I have found!!! It gives how different work stations might look in k-2 classrooms. It is a very easy read and IT REALLY WORKS!!!
This book has it all! I have never come across a book as easy to follow. It tells you exactly how to set everything up. This is a must have, especially for new teachers! Love this book.
