This is a bundle of 5 literacy centers that I use with my firsties throughout the year. Most of the activities will require the use of weekly spelling/reading words to use. This pack includes:
Write It, Stamp It, Decorate It- Write the spelling/reading word in pencil, stamp it with letter stamps and ink, and then use color pencils to decorate the word.
Popcorn Words - Can use paper bags or popcorn containers from Dollar Tree. Print popcorn words on card stock, laminate, cut, and distribute into containers. I then either laminate or place worksheets in sheet protectors and tape to a cookie tray (also from Dollar Tree). I have my students use their magnetic letters to build the words and then they write the word and a sentence using the word with expo markers, erase and repeat. ** 60 Popcorn words from the R unit, Unit 1 and Unit 2 in Reading Street **
Rainbow Write- Use spelling/reading words.Write in pencil first and then decorate with colored pencils.
ABC order- Write words on popsicle sticks. Laminate or use sheet protector for worksheet for extended use. Students will pick 10 popsicle sticks and lay them on the left side of their paper and then write them in ABC order on the right side of their paper.
Building Sentences: May use the 14 sentences and write them on sentence strips, or print and cut the ones I made already. I place the answer key inside of a file folder. Can use this center on a pocket chart or on a table. Teaches kids to look for capital letters and periods for complete sentences.
** Building Sentences and Pop Corn words are available for individual purchase! **
