Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten

Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten Christmas is just over a month away and I have been working as much as I can to get the updates available to you before the beginning of December. Things are a bit hectic in my life at the moment as we have just moved house, but I will do my best to get the Christmas Math Centers updated too ūüôā PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten¬†packet. You can download the free sample pages by clicking on the photos. To purchase the complete Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten packet,¬†please click here! 1. Christmas write & wipe alphabet To prepare the cards for use in a write and wipe center, print, laminate them, and then cut them apart. The intention of this activity is for children to practice correct letter formation with a dry-erase marker. The cards can be kept in a book-like format by making a hole in the top left corner and securing together with a key ring or a pipe-cleaner. 2. Missing letters: Christmas ornaments To prepare the cards for use, print, laminate and cut apart. Children are required to identify the missing letter and place it in the empty box. 3. Christmas clip the beginning sound Print, laminate and cut out the picture cards. The aim of this activity is for children to correctly identify the beginning sound of each picture and to clip a clothes peg to show their answer. Alternatively, children can use dry-erase markers to colour the correct beginning sound. 4. Christmas clip the syllables To prepare this activity for use, print the cards, laminate them and then cut them apart. Household pegs, or other small clipping items such as unused hair clips or paper clips, can be used for this activity. The aim is for children to identify the number of syllables in each word. 5. Christmas tree ornaments word family sort To prepare this activity, print, laminate and cut out the sorting tree mats and ornament picture cards. The aim is for children to identify the ending for each word and sort it to the correct word family tree. 6. Christmas stocking CVC words scramble You will need to provide children with magnetic or Scrabble letter tiles for this activity. To prepare this activity for use, print the Christmas stocking cards, laminate them and then cut them out. The aim of this activity is for children to... read more

Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten

Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten Hey all! I’m back again to show you the activities included in the Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten. PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten¬†packet. You can download the free sample pages by clicking on the photos. To purchase the complete Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten packet,¬†please click here! Let’s just jump right into it! Contents: 1. Thanksgiving count and clip cards. These are¬†basic counting cards that require kiddos to¬†clip a peg on the correct answer and then¬†record their answers on the recording page provided. 2. Turkey counting on (1-10). This¬†activity’s level of difficulty gradually increases. Kiddos start off by writing a couple of the missing numbers on the first handful of cards and then, by the last handful, they are given only the starting number or a middle number, from which they have to count on (and count backwards). 3. Thanksgiving Which has More? clip cards. Kiddos simply clip the box that contains the most items. On the recording page, they color either the top of bottom box¬†to show where they clipped. 4. Thanksgiving Which has Less? clip cards. This is the same as the “Which has More” activity, only the focus is on the box with the least¬†number¬†of items. 5. Thanksgiving count and graph (1-8). Kiddos simply count the number of items and represent their findings on the bar graph below and then by writing the total number on the recording page. 6. Turkey number match. This is¬†a super cute turkey activity to help your children with different number representations. 7. Thanksgiving number puzzles (skip counting by 10s). This is a great activity not only for number sequence, but also comparing numbers to determine the first number¬†with which to begin the sequence. 8. Turkey addition. Kiddos need to¬†work out the sum of each equation and then sort it to the¬†correct turkey. On the recording sheet,¬†for your higher kiddos, you could ask them to write¬†one¬†different equation. 9. Build a Thanksgiving pattern (AB/ABB/AAB/ABC). Kiddos build the¬†start of the pattern and then figure out what the missing picture is. 10. Turkey clip the shape cards. This is an easy way to help your kiddos recognise shapes. 11. Thanksgiving non standard measurement. I have included a turkey measuring strip for this activity, but decided to use¬†Unifix cubes this time around. 12. Thanksgiving Which weighs More? clip cards. This is similar to the What has More/Less activities. 13. Thanksgiving... read more
