HELP!!! Literacy Center/Stations Problems

Hi everyone!  I'm really struggling with my reading centers this year.  It has been great trying out the "Literacy Stations" concept where my kids go to 2 centers a day, visit with me and the computer.  They work in partners at their 2 centers but travel as a group of 4 or 5 to the computer and to meet with teacher.  It is great because they work so much quieter!  However, here is my problem.  I can only have 5 in a group because I only have 5 computers in my classroom. 
In the past, I have had 4 centers a day and they go to each center 4, 5, or 6 in a group.  This worked great but it can sometimes get loud and without an aide in my room to help manage, it makes it difficult. 
How do you do it?!!?!?  Please help me!!!!!

  1. Do you want everyone to get to everything each day? If so, you could put the last group that you will meet with on the computer 1st. Then as each groups leaves your table they go to computers next. When they're done on computer, they're free to go to the centers. Students who are waiting to come to you do the 2 centers/stations 1st.
