⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"Words cannot describe how much I love these stations. I have bought all the other grades as well for the sake of having them if I bounce from grade to grade, or if I have a student who needs work a year behind/ahead, or also just because I love them. They're visually appealing, easy for the students to understand once they've been taught the process, and very explicitly practice the listed skill. This is BEAUTIFUL.”  

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Amazing purchase! My students love it! I love that you have so many different opportunities in ways to use this resource…digital and printable. Easy to understand task while I’m working in small groups my kids can be independently working.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"These centers are amazing!! I love how they cover so many of the grade level standards. They are easy enough for students to do independently as well as in small groups. My students love them!”

➡️This resource is VOLUME 2 and DOES NOT include holiday-themed clipart. If you would like centers with holidays, we have created a VOLUME 1 just for you...complete with totally unique center activities (not just these centers with clipart switched out).


This bundle is the TOP BUNDLE of all First Grade Volume 2 Printable and Digital Centers and the BEST DEAL! We have the individual pieces included in this bundle available to purchase separately if you desire…but this is the best deal!

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 includes printable and digital and can be used on Google Classroom™, Seesaw™, Microsoft Teams™, Canvas™, and Schoology™. (We only provide support for Google Classroom and Seesaw as we have not taught using the other platforms. However, there are many Youtube videos available on how to use Google Slides™ inside the other platforms.

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.
