Here is my line-up of centers for this week!
The children are SO excited to be starting 10 frames – or 10 picture frames as one child called it! ha! At this center, they will make little apples with the apple scented play dough and fill in the ten frame – then copy that over to their recording sheet.
Here, they are using the Lakeshore letter stampers to stamp the beginning sound of the picture.
At this center, they are shaking the dice, counting the dots and dobbing the number.
Still working hard at that instant identification of the dot formation! We are also really trying hard to make numbers the correct way.
The children will use the IWB for this center. They will count the apples on each tree and write it under the apple tree.
At this center, the children will find their sight words around the room and trace them. Eventually they will write the words themselves, but this is their first center with letter boxes!
This center will also be one on the IWB – they will spin a spinner with beginning sound pictures and dob the correct letter.
At this center, the children will pull an apple from the basket, say the letter and stamp the matching lowercase letter. I am using apple cards that I had from a previous activity, but cards are included in the unit.
I’m super excited for this last literacy center! I was awarded 5 iPads from a district grant for our Kindergarten classroom! The children don’t know yet, but they will be exploring literacy apps during center time this week! FUN!
All of these activities (except for one) are included in my Apples unit.
Here is a little activity that I used last year – hope you can use it!
