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 🙂

PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten packet. You can download free sample pages by clicking on the photos. To purchase the complete Christmas Literacy Centers for Kindergarten packet, 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 color 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.

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 collect the letter tiles shown on each card and arrange them to build the word for each picture.

7. Christmas reindeer spin and rhyme
Print, laminate and cut out all the cards. You will need to supply children with a paper clip and a pencil to make a spinner. Children being by laying out in a row the red header cards. They spin the pencil spinner on the reindeer spinning card and read the word where it stops. Children then find a matching rhyming picture and place it under the brown card it rhymes with. This continues until all the cards have been used up.

8. Santa’s sight words list scramble (Pre-Primer and Primer Dolch Words)
You will need to provide children with magnetic or Scrabble letter tiles for this activity.
To prepare this activity for use, print the lists, laminate them for durability and then cut them out. The aim of this activity is for children unscramble the letters on each card to make a sight word from the Dolch Pre-Primer or Primer list. Once a sight word has been built, they record it on the page included.

9. Christmas sentence match
Print the sentence strips and picture cards and then laminate them for durability. Cut along the dotted lines to separate them. The aim is for children to read the sentence and then find the matching picture.

10. Christmas write the room
To prepare this activity, print, laminate and cut out all the vocabulary cards. Place the cards randomly around the room. Provide your children with a clip board with the recording page/s. The aim is for children to find the picture cards and write the word next to the matching picture on their recording page.
