Spring Literacy Centers for Kindergarten

The Spring Literacy Centers for Kindergarten packet contains a collection of games and activities intended for use in centers and small groups with children in Kindergarten (Prep). Each activity includes a center label that can be printed and placed on the front of your storage device. Also included are “I can” center instructions to help children remember what to do. I have included a recording page at the end of each activity in order to have evidence of each child’s work.
