Apple and Fall Literacy Centers!
This set of centers includes: blends, sight word fluency, and ABC order. All of the games and centers are aligned with the common core. This set of centers is 72 pages long. It is appropriate for 1st or 2nd grade, homeschool, and special education instruction.

"Baskets of Blends" A fall themed, differentiated center/game that focuses on identifying the pictures on the apples or leaves and saying the word out loud to identify the beginning blend. Students will sort the pictures into the basket with the matching beginning blend. Students will complete extension activities to demonstrate their proficiency in sorting and identifying blends. There are 3 different extension activities for each set of blends.
Blends include: bl,cl, br, cr, sc, sm, sp, st, fl, gl, pl,sl.

"Ladders to Reading Fluency" This is a fall themed activity or game that focuses on building sight word fluency. Students will practice reading sight words to improve reading fluency. They will use their “reading muscles” to read the words up the ladder in one breath. There are various sight words on the ladders. I am happy to add any set of words that you want to the packet. Send me an email and let me know the words that you would like added:
This activity can be used in a small group, a center, or individually with students. This activity can also be sent home for parents to work with their children.
Students will color in an apple on their incentive chart each time they reach the top of a ladder!

"ABC Apples" A fall themed, differentiated center/game that focuses on putting words into ABC order. This game is great for 1st and 2nd graders of differing abilities. It is also appropriate for a school or homeschooled setting, as well as, for special education instruction. In one center, students are able to physically manipulate the words to help make the activity more concrete.
