Pumpkin Centers

Here is what we have been working on during centers!

They LOVE using spinners!  This one is from Julie Lee.

Practicing some patterns!

Still working on numbers and number words.

This is a great activity to introduce the complete 100s grid.  It is a free app called Counting Board.  The children simply tap a square, find the corresponding number on their number grid and color it in.  This keeps them SO engaged!!

A little bit of non-standard measuring.

This is a game that I adapted from my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher last year.  The children roll the dice and create towers with with the correct number of cubes.  When they have created all 6 towers, they get to color in one pumpkin.

Last year, I used the Promethean board for this center.  This year, I used an old fashioned pocket chart!

This page from Julie’s unit was originally intended to be used in a different way.  I adapted it to use my beginning sound stamps from Lakeshore.  I love how we can use each other’s units and make them fit our needs in our classroom!

This is from Julie’s pumpkin unit as well.  This is one of my most challenging centers this week! I love making them THINK!

This activity is from my It’s Fall Y’all pack.  I’ve recently updated some of the pages in this unit, so if you’ve purchased it, go back and download the updates!

Last year, I did this activity with this particular recording sheet.

This year, I wanted to incorporate my IWB with this sheet. I found this super simple flipchart on Promethean planet (if you search for it, you’ll find it!).  IMG_7707

The children simply count the pumpkins on the page, circle it (they love to choose the color!) and then fill in the ten frame on their recording sheet.
