Kindergarten Centers - First Quarter Simply Centers Bundle - Literacy Centers




Included in this download is:

Each Simply Center comes with:

- a print and play game in color and black and white to print on color paper

- an objective and direction card that is editable so if you don't like my directions you can change them, on the back of the card is a photo of the center so the students have a visual of what they are supposed to be working on

- several accountability pages so you can pick what works best for your students

Simply Centers are stored on our Dropbox and our Google Drive. Upon purchase you will get a link to the files. The files are sorted by academic concept and theme to make it easy for you to find what you need.


Each quarter will be listed separately and each quarter will have 3 themes with lots of centers within those themes. Those themes will be appropriate for the following approximate timeframes.

First Quarter (CLICK HERE) - August, September, beginning of October

Second Quarter (CLICK HERE)- end of October, November, December

Third Quarter - (CLICK HERE) January, February, March

Fourth Quarter - (CLICK HERE) April, May, June

Please note, this listing is only first quarter. Other quarters will be seperate listings on TpT due to the sheer size of the files.

However, this is an Endless Bundle. Endless meaning any other First Quarter Simply Center Literacy Center files Simply Kinder creates in the future will be included in this bundle.


This file currently includes 32 individual Simply Centers:

The themes covered are (please see below for the progress of how many centers are included in each):

- Back to School

- Apples

- Fall

- Fire Safety

The academic concepts/centers covered are:

- alphabet

- phonemic awareness (working with sounds individually and with words, although PA is an auditory skill, remember all of our centers have accountability pages so there is writing involved)

- phonics (working with the whole word)

- sight words (we use a variety of words but will do our best to make these editable so you can customize the words you want)

- writing

Some themes, academic topics, or centers have more than others. For example, it's first quarter so you will find more alphabet and initial sounds centers than phonics because that is what is appropriate academically.
