PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Creativity and Literacy pack includes over 100 creative learning printables for low-prep literacy centers.

How to use these printables?

Make a Creativity + Literacy center for students to visit during literacy rotations, for fast-finishers, or for students to work on with parent volunteers. You can make one activity available at a time, or add several pages to binders or tubs and let students choose which activity they would like to work on.

Or...post challenges on your interactive whiteboard as morning work, or work on challenges as a class to introduce or reinforce lessons.

Or...send challenges home for parents and students to use as homework, or for summer learning.

Set up is easy! For centers, just print the pages or sections that relate to your curriculum, laminate or place them in sheet protectors, and gather the related creative materials that work for your classroom. At the beginning of each section, I've listed classroom friendly creative materials to use, but the activities are flexible and you can use a variety of materials. (I recommend starting with simple items like pencils, crayons, paper, Wikki Stix, pattern blocks, popsicle sticks, play dough, etc.) You may want to store challenges in a binder for easy access. (Binder covers are included.)

*Both color and black/white versions of challenges are available to print.

This resource includes over 100 printables organized into the following sections:
