These 10 activities will help jump start your center activities at the beginning of the school year. All of the activities are designed for the students to complete independently. Each activity includes a cover sheet with student directions, cards needed and a recording sheet (except the class names sort).
All the pages in this packet are usable by the student with the exception of 5 pages (cover sheet, table of contents, abc order variation note, class names sort directions and thank you page). The activities included are:
*It’s time for school-Abc order to the first letter or to the second letter

*word scramble-matching pictures with their scrambled up word
*back to school word challenge-making words using the letters in “teacher”
