Fun at the Beach! Literacy Centers!

The last few weeks of school are simply CRAZY!  Constant interruptions, assessments, organizing, special events and so on! I try to keep the day as consistent as possible for the kiddos.

They loved our literacy centers this week.  Here is a peek of what we did!

We used our Lakeshore fishing rods (love these!) to go fishing for sight words.

Had a little beach ball fun by rolling the ball to each other and writing the sight word that was closest to our hands when we caught the ball.


Played some CVC UNO.


and unscrambled our sentences.


I am so happy that the children love our centers – they stay engaged the whole time, and I am able to pull kids for assessments, for small groups, or for one on one work. 

These centers are all from my Fun at the Beach unit if you’re interested!  I’ll post pictures of math centers tomorrow!


  1. So cute!!! Now I TOTALLY feel like I NEED those fishing rods!!!

  2. I agree! Those fishing rods are great! Cute, cute , cute!

  3. I use them ALL the time! In the beginning of the year I use them with the letters that come with them. The kids LOVE them!

  4. Learning so much from you! Love your ideas and can't wait to try them.
    With thanks
