Easter Week Centers

We have a 3 day week this week and next, so I switched things up a bit and went for 6 math and 6 literacy centers for the next 2 weeks.  So far so good!

Here is what the kiddos are working on:

{Literacy}

Counting Syllables

Using our sight words to write super sentences!

Practicing the tricky tr and dr blends:

Matching ending sounds to the picture and stamping the CVC word:

Cracking an egg to write the digraph:

{Math}

Adding with 3 numbers:

Still working on naming and saying the value of coins.

Which number is bigger?

Working with number words.  The children crack an egg and build the number word with the letter tiles that are inside of each egg. (download this one below!)

Who doesn’t love Peeps?

I think I forgot to snap a pic of the recording sheet for these 2 centers. The top one is for count the room, and the bottom is for an egg vowel hunt.

Here are some centers that we did last year too…I would love a comment if you download!  I’m making cookies/dessert for Easter – what’s your favorite thing to make for your kids (or with your kids) for Easter?

For this center, you can use picture cards or miniatures (like the ones from Lakeshore)

I can’t remember where the original idea for this sheet came from.  If you know or if it’s you, please let me know so I can give credit where it is due!  For this activity (doing it on Wednesday!), I put an assortment of jelly beans in a plastic egg – each child gets an egg to sort and graph. Fun!

We follow Scott Foresman Reading Street, and I usually save the book Bunny Time for this time of year.  We use this sheet to record things that we do in the morning, afternoon, and night.

Let me know what goodies you like to bake for Easter! Leave a link if you can!

  10. I am looking for a better way to organize my centers each week. I noticed in your photos that it looks like you used the containers with drawers and put a letter on each one to help organize. I would love to know more about your set up for centers. I love going to your site and getting ideas.

  15. So many CUTE ideas- thanks! I'm a homeschool mom and center ideas are WONDERFUL for "On the road" schooling. We call them competency bags, and I am always looking for new ideas at many grade levels. I'm incorporating most of your Easter ideas. These are really terrific. Thanks!!
