Literacy Centers

Come Together – a differentiated sound & CVC activity
RF.K.2a, RF.K.2c

Version 1: Students match the picture to the CVC word. After matching the pieces, students find the picture on the paper and write the word.

Version 2: Students match the beginning sound and half of the picture with the ending rime and the second half of the picture. After matching the pieces, students find the picture on the paper and write the word.

Harvest Rhymes – a differentiated rhyme activity
RF.K.2a

Version 1: Students choose a pumpkin card with three pictures on it. They must identify the pictures and determine which two rhyme. Then they use the number on the card to find the matching pictures on the recording sheet. They color the two pictures from the set that rhyme.

Version 2: Students choose a pumpkin card with one picture on it. They must identify the picture. Then they use the number on the card and find it on the recording sheet. There are two pictures next to the number. They must color the one that rhymes with the picture on the card.

Native Words – differentiated sight word puzzles
RF.K.3c

Version 1: Students choose a puzzle top and read the word. They match the puzzle top that says the sight word with the puzzle pieces with the letters on the bottom. When they have matched the pieces they read the word again and use a white crayon to write it inside a feather on the recording sheet. After they have written in white crayon, they can color the feather in with a marker to reveal the word.

Version 2: Students choose a puzzle top and read the sentence. They figure out the missing word using the picture to help guide them. They match the puzzle top to the puzzle pieces for the letters of the missing word. When they have matched the pieces they read the sentence again and use a white crayon to write the missing word inside a feather on the recording sheet. After they have written in white crayon, they can color the feather in with a marker to reveal the word.

Pilgrim Hats – a differentiated letter and sound activity.
RF.K.1d, RF.K.2d

Version 1: Students choose a pilgrim hat card and name the lowercase letter. Then students use the recording sheet to find the matching uppercase letter in a pilgrim hat and color it.

Version 2: Students choose a pilgrim hat card and name the picture. They say the beginning sound of the picture. Then students use the recording sheet to find the letter in a pilgrim hat that matches the beginning sound and colors it.

Tail Feathers – a differentiated syllable activity
RF.K.2b

Version 1: Students choose a turkey body, say the picture, and clap the syllables. They give the turkey the number of feathers as there are syllables in the picture. Once the students know how many syllables there are, they use the recording sheet to find the matching picture. They color the number of feathers as there are syllables.

Version 2: Students sort the turkey feathers by how many syllables the picture on the feather has. They add the feather to the correct turkey (labeled 1 syllable, 2 syllables, or 3 syllables). One the recording sheet, the students find the picture and write the numeral for how many syllables there are underneath.

Math Centers

Dinner Rolls – a differentiated shape spinner activity.
K.G.A.3

Version 1: Students roll the die and name the 2D shape in the dinner roll. Then, they should find that shape on the recording sheet and color it. Continue until all shapes are colored. This version represents six shapes: triangle, rectangle, square, circle, hexagon, and trapezoid.
NOTE: This version also allows for a recording sheet where students draw the 2D shapes instead of coloring them.

Version 2: This activity works the same, but incorporates 3D shapes: sphere, cube, rectangular prism, pyramid, cone, and cylinder.

Feather Tallies – a differentiated tally marks activity.
K.CC.B.4, K.CC.B.5

Version 1: Students choose a turkey card and read the number. Once they know how many, they find the matching feather tallies card. Then they match the letter on the card to a box on the recording sheet. There they draw the correct number of tally marks.

Version 2: Students choose a turkey card and read the number. Once they know how many, they use the bone cards (or feathers) to build the correct number of tally marks. Then they match the letter on the card to a box on the recording sheet. There they draw the correct number of tally marks.

Mayflower Measure – a differentiated measurement activity.
K.MD.1, K.MD.2

Version 1: Students choose a measurement card and count how many units tall the picture is. Then they match the number on the card to a box on the recording sheet. There they color the correct number of units (so if the cornucopia is 4 units tall, that’s how many units are colored) and write the numeral in the small box.

Version 2: Students choose a measurement card and decide which object is shorter and which is taller. Then they match the letter on the card to a box on the recording sheet. There they color the taller object brown and the shorter object orange.

Pumpkin Pie – differentiated number spinners
K.CC.A.3, K.CC.B.4, K.CC.B.5

Version 1: Students use a paper clip (or a clear spinner) and spin. Read the numeral it lands on. Then they find a ten frame on the recording sheet and color the pumpkin pie it is in.

Version 2: Students use a paper clip (or a clear spinner) and spin. Identify how many are in the ten frame it lands on. Then they write the numeral for “how many” in a pumpkin pie on the recording sheet.

Thanksgiving Graph - a differentiated graphing activity.
K.CC.A3, K.CC.B.4, K.CC.B.5, K.CC.C.6

Version 1: Students count “how many?” of five different Thanksgiving images in the picture scramble. After counting each one, they color in the number of squares next to that same image on the recording sheet. Counting up to five.

Version 2: Students count “how many?” of five different Thanksgiving images in the picture scramble. After counting each one, they color in the number of squares next to that same image on the recording sheet. Then they answer two questions about more or less using their graph they made.
