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!
