Are you a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade teacher who is in need of some Literacy Centers for your classroom during the month of December?
I have created a set of six Literacy Centers for you to use in your classroom. These centers cover various Language Arts skills and can be used in several different ways to differentiate learning. Be sure to view the document preview to see what all is included in your purchase. I am also more than happy to answer any questions you might have before you purchase this product. You can either leave a question to the seller, or you can e-mail me at email@example.com. Please be sure and also leave feedback about your purchase!
Be sure and also check out my blog to see other ideas that I use in my classroom: Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher.
Fact and Opinion Sort: Students will work to decide whether statements are facts or opinions. There are a total of twelve cards, two sorting mats, directions, and an answer key provided. There is also a cover page that you can use to put on the outside of your envelope or inside of your baggie.
Snowmen Sentences Fix-Up: Students will work to correct sentences about Christmas and winter that have several errors in them. Included with this center is a cover page, directions for teacher and students, an answer key, and twelve sentences for students to correct.
December Writing Prompts: There are a total of eight writing prompts for students to respond to and there are also four publishing pages to write their responses on.
Abominable Snowman Analogies: Students will work to solve a total of twelve analogies that are about things in December. Each card has the analogy listed and four possible choices. Included is a cover page, student and teacher directions, twelve analogy cards, a recording sheet, and an answer key.
Build a Snowman: In this center students will work to build a snowman of their own. They will need a total of eight pieces that they will earn by answering task cards that are reviewing nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, and prepositions. There are a total of 24 task cards and there are also copies of each of the pieces that they will need to build their snowman. An answer key, spinner, game pieces, task cards, cover pages, teacher directions, and student directions are included for this activity.
Christmas Writing: Students will be able to select from five acrostics that they can complete using their own ideas. Publishing pages are included for the final product.
If you purchased a PDF and it is blurry after you open it, solve it this way: on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER. That's it. On a MAC, make sure to "Open With" ADOBE READER and NOT Preview. If it's still blurry, that's because you are still opening it with Preview!
