These Cinco de Mayo literacy center activities can be used with your choice of story for this historic event. They will provide meaningful engagement and follow-up as children work independently at their centers.
Of the 10 centers in this collection, 4 of them are used each day throughout the week. These centers are of the type that children enjoy repeating and continue to use very productively.
The Daily Centers are:
• Writing the Room
• Reading and Writing Fluency Triangles
• Concentration Game
• I Can Spy the Words
The Project Center is also a daily center, but the content changes each day. During this time, the child completes one activity each day within the rotation time block. These 6 centers are in black and white, ready for you to run off as class sets.
The 6 Project Centers are:
• Emergent Build-A-Word Reading Book
• Poetry Book addition
• Retelling Story Headband craftivity
• Word and Picture Initial Sound Match
• Fill-in-the-Blank-missing words from the poem
• I Can Label It!-thematic picture
In addition, 2 bonus items are included in this pack:
• Pocket Chart Pictures, in color, to accompany the poem
• A Cinco de Mayo poem, in color, for the class poetry book
As teachers, we know how important it is for students to form meaningful connections to the stories they read and hear. These activities are designed to provide that support for story content, literary elements and reading fluency. These activities can also assist in the development of phonemic awareness, as well as help develop an understanding of vocabulary, syntax, and story structure. There is so much to love about children's literature!
