This was very well put together. I enjoyed sharing this with my class. All came in handy and I'm still using the bean pattern even after we finished our Jack and the Beanstalk theme.

This pack of literacy and math centers fits perfectly in with my Jack and The Beanstalk unit for Grade 1. I students have really enjoyed the Building the Castle game and the True or False questions were great for comprehension. I would like to have seen some more writing activities but the math ones overall are good and I really like the word wall cards as well. Thanks!
