{December}

Here is a quick peek of some of the activities my kiddos will be working on this week! 

There are two options for writing and counting the room!  I’m using the write the room one as a “second” center that the kids can go to as they finish their first center.

At this center, the children use pattern blocks to measure their Christmas tree.

At this center, the kids grab a handful of “presents”, count them and tally how many they grabbed.

More patterns!

Dice domes and dobbers…what could be more fun!  Adding the two dice and dobbing the sum.

Here the children roll the dice and write the ending sum.  They “collect their gifts” as they travel around the maze.  It’s amazing how something so simple can keep the kiddos so engaged!

Unscrambling sight words!

I have this center at my IWB.  The children manipulate the words to build a sentence.  They love working at the IWB!  The book is at our listening center.  The listening center is always one of our weekly centers.  I try to have the IWB be a center as well, and throw in the ipads when I can too.  Nothing like technology to keep the kids engaged!

All of these centers are inlcuded in my “Get your Jolly On” pack.  We still have 3 full days of teaching this week! Wish me luck friends!

I love all of your ideas!I was just wondering, what do your kids do when they complete a center?

They have a second choice -- they can read from their book baskets, write in the journals, go to the writing center, the pocket chart, work in a sight word book, write the room...I keep adding a few different choices for them -- I want them to be able to work independently. I also closely monitor, and if I see that all students finish fairly quickly (quicker than the time alloted), I'll move on!

I LOVE HOW YOU ORGANIZE YOUR WORKSTATIONS! I AM HEADING TO IKEA IN THE MORNING. I HAVE SO MANY GREAT WORKSTATIONS THAT I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING BUT I NEVER UTILIZE THEM TO THE FULLEST BECAUSE THEY ARE A MESS. NOT ANY LONGER!
