Included in this pack are 6 activities to be used during literacy center time and all deal with the the lucky month of March. Topics include spring/springtime, March weather/lion and lamb, and St. Patrick's Day/leprechauns. They are Common Core Aligned to 2nd and 3rd grade literacy standards. It will make center time a breeze for you! All centers are easy to prepare with minimal prep work.
I typically laminate the student directions page and attach that to the top of a large envelope and then place the center inside of it.
*Lucky ABC Order- Place words into alphabetical order and record on sheet.
*Making Words- Use word cards (leprechauns) to create words. Students write their words on the recording sheet.
*Lucky Verb Sort- Students match up past and present tense verb cards and record on sheet.
*Write On- Students choose a picture card relating to spring and write a story about it.
*In Like a Lion, Out Like a Thesaurus- Students choose a word card and look it up in a thesaurus. They then write down two "new" words to record on their sheet.
