The second center is a large Easter Basket. It is a game where the student draws an instruction card for adding 2 types of Easter treats to the basket.

An optional recording sheet is provided. This sheet can be used as is, or the sheet can be cut in strips, and each child receives one strip to record their number sentence. It is recommended to laminate or place in a sleeve protector, then use an expo marker for repeated use.
The third center is a spin, count, and add center. The student will spin the spinner to choose the correct number of items to add. Then the student will spin the second spinner to see which item to place in the basket, adding the amount of items based on the first spinner. This gives practice adding up to the sum of 8. Optional: Have the student spin three times instead of two to add three numbers with a sum greater than 8. Black and white patterns are included in this center. Use the picture cards from center two or duplicate if both centers are being used at the same time.
