Here's a simple sorting/classifying activity for a literacy center. Place in a writing center and have students sort items by 'Back Pack" or "lunch box". After sorting, they can write about what they have in their lunch box or back pack.
It will tie in nicely with stories like "Countdown to the First Day of School" or "The Night before First Grade" or "If You Take a Mouse to School"
Great little activity for the beginning of the year.
Common Core standards included.
Thanks for stopping by.
