Developmentally appropriate Spring themed literacy centers for the preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten classroom! This resource is perfect for all developmental and cognitive levels of early childhood. The centers are fun, engaging, and offer challenges and reinforcement of basic skills.
This resource is set up with 3 levels of developmentally appropriate Spring themed Vocabulary centers for the early childhood classroom. Every class is different, every student is different, so this resource gives you the option of starting out slowly, building on what your students know, and offering a challenge as skills are mastered.
Level 1: Spring Vocabulary Matching
This beginning level matches vocabulary words. This is a great activity to reinforce words and concepts used in your Spring Unit. It is a fantastic activity to show directionality of print, to use critical thinking skills, and continue learning through a fun game with Spring vocabulary pictures. My class always loves to do this activity at the end of a unit to talk about what we have learned!
Level 2: Spring Noun & Verb Sort
This activity builds on the first but adds the element of sorting our Spring vocabulary words into words of action and doing and words of people, places and things. This is a beginning parts of speech center that will get the kids thinking about what kinds of words we use to describe the world around us. It can be a challenge, but if you ask the kids if they can act out what they see…it makes it more fun and a little easier!
Level 3: Things That Go Together! Spring Vocabulary Puzzles
This center activity builds on the first two by using previous knowledge to connect words to what they ‘go’ with. It can be a tricky exercise for some. I like to use this activity to assess critical thinking skills. The puzzles only have one solution, so students will know if they are on the right track immediately.
