This file contains several activities to use during a back to school or school supplies theme. You will find:
-roll and cover
-school supplies word cards
Use in combination with my "Backpack, Backpack, What Do You See?" for a great mix of math and literacy centers!
To use the counting puzzles: cut apart (with numbers attached) on the solid lines. Children can put the puzzles together either by putting the picture together or by putting the numbers in the right order.
To use the roll and cover: children will roll two dice and cover the number as they are rolled (for this particular roll and cover, I have classroom themed erasers that I found at the Dollar Tree, but you could use any number of manipulatives.). When all of the numbers are covered, they win the game!
To use the word cards: I have the children choose a word card and find the magnetic letters and put them in the right order for some pre-reading practice. However, if you have a more advanced group, they could also write the words. For a bigger challenge, you could cut the pictures of the word card and have the children match them up.
