In this product, you will find 10 first grade literacy centers for the month of October. These were designed for the skill level of first grade students at this time during the school year.
I use these centers as "word work" in my Daily 5 rounds. They could easily be used in literacy centers, small groups, partner activities, etc.
My students have about 15 minutes to complete their word work so these centers were designed with that time-frame in mind. Each center also comes with an exit slip for students to complete. I love the use of exit slips to hold students accountable and as a simple formative assessment.
The center activities include:
- Short I word family sort
- Short I puzzles
- Short I connect four game
- Short O word family sort
- Short O puzzles
- Short O connect four game
- Nouns sorting activity: person, place, or thing
- Roll a sight word practice (Fry words)
- Sight word handwriting practice
- List making writing activity
I will be creating similar literacy centers for each month of the school year so check back for more first grade literacy fun!
