Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the difference between Volume 1 and Volume 2?

Volume 1 and Volume 2 are completely different center activities. Volume 1 includes holiday clipart in months like October, November, December, February, March, April, and July.

Are the centers in Volume 1 and Volume 2 different activities, or the same activities with the clipart just switched out?

This is a great question! When we built Volume 2 of our popular centers, we didn't want to just switch out the clip art and have you purchase the same centers twice. Many teachers buy both volumes to double the number of centers they have for their classrooms for this reason. Rest assured that Volume 1 and Volume 2 do not contain the same center activities.

Can these centers be used independently by my students?

We pride ourselves on building our center activities following our Easy Centers Framework™ which includes having activities that are predictable and familiar to students. We use a bank of different styles of activities throughout the month (choosing the best one we feel is appropriate for the skill) so that your students become familiar with the activities and have fewer (and some teachers report NONE) questions each time you switch out centers.

Can these activities be used in a digital or virtual classroom?

This particular unit is printable and hands-on so it can not be used in a virtual classroom. However, we do have a digital version of these centers in our shop. You can find our digital centers here: CLICK HERE

Can I use these activities in my online classrooms as teaching material? (Outschool, Online ESL)
YES! We love online teachers and we authorize our resources to be used BY THE TEACHER during lessons. We don't allow them to be sent to parents to be used outside the online classroom.
