PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

** BLACK/WHITE VERSION INCLUDED ** It's Back to School Time! This collection of Math and ELA Centers are designed to be used in a 2nd grade classroom. They will serve as a review of 1st grade Common Core Standards since the centers are designed for the beginning of 2nd grade. The 10 specific standards covered are noted below:

Math Centers:
1. Add Three Numbers (Review of 1.OA.8)
2. True or False Sort (Review of 1.OA.7)
3. Adding Bigger Numbers (Review of 1.NBT.4)
4. Working with Shapes (Review of 1.G.3)
5. Tens and Ones (Review of 1.NBT.2)

ELA Centers:
1. Long and Short Vowel Sort (Review of 1.RF.2)
2. Words with Similar Meanings (Review of 1.L.5)
3. Fix the Sentences! (Review of 1.L.2)
4. My First Day of School Narrative Writing (Review of 1.W.3)
5. Correct and Incorrect Sentence Sort (Review of 1.L.1)

PLEASE NOTE: I have included both full-color (chalkboard background) and printer-friendly versions (white backgrounds) of the task pages and sorting mats. The full-color versions are in the document as is, while the printer-friendly versions are all located in the back of the file for your printing convenience. Simply click File, Print, then select the pages you wish to print (either the full-color pages or printer-friendly pages). I hope you enjoy the extra option of printer-friendly pages!

I hope you find these centers to be a great way to create hands-on learning in your classroom! Don't forget to download the Preview File to see all that is included. Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous as always! I am so excited to share these with my second graders the first week of school! It will be a great review for them and for me to see where they are at! I loved that you provided different color options to save on some ink if need be! However, I just had to print the adorable chalkboard style! You're products are always a masterpiece and I will forever continue to be your biggest fan!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  July 10, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I happened upon your blog and was LOVING your post on how you do your reading centers with the Daily 5. Do you have a sample schedule that you display for your students or even one that lays out all rotations for the teacher? I teach 2nd grade as well and am trying to revamp my centers and am looking into incorporating ideas from Daily 5 as well. If you'd rather email me back instead of posting on here it's tarakaty@gmail.com. I couldn't find a spot on your blog to post or email.
