    Here's a peek at what's inside this 2nd grade bundle!

    | School Days Literacy Centers: |

    This pack contains 10 literacy centers that are perfect to use for Back to School and beyond! I know how important differentiation is, so each center includes multiple ways to use these activities:

    -“More support” option for students who are still developing in their understanding

    -“More challenging” option for those students who are ready for the next step.

    Prep once and you’re ready to go! Each activity also comes with a recording sheet.(unless otherwise noted).
