See & Write {literacy & math centers}

A few years ago, I created some easy-to-prep, ready-to-go centers for my literacy and math time called See & Stamp Centers. They included 4 literacy centers and 4 math centers for each month that covered skills my kinders could complete independently! They loved using the stamps and I loved that they were practicing important skills.

It wasn't until a few days ago that I realized I could just make ONE little change to these centers and they would serve a whole NEW purpose! I simply switched out the word "stamp" for the word "write" and bam! Now these centers can be used throughout the year, NO STAMPS NEEDED!! 

These centers are super easy to prep! Just straight lines across the cards to cut them apart and of course laminate them for long lasting durability ;) I used my new Fiskars guillotine paper cutter, it is SO nice! {that's my affiliate link up there in case you want to try it out :)}

They are also easy to keep organized. Each center piece and recording sheet has matching clip art so you know which cards go with which paper! To save on paper, make copies for the students visiting each center and slide the recording sheets into sheet protectors. The kiddos can use dry-erase marker to record their answers, have their work checked, and then erase the recording sheet for the next group of kids!

Here's a look at the literacy centers included for January:
Sight word reading and writing practice {I've also included an editable page for the words since we all teach different ones at different times of the year :)}

CVC practice

Ending sounds

Magic e words

Here are the math centers included:
Counting on from a given number

Addition to 6

Teen numbers

Making a ten using ten frames

I included the See & Write Centers in the same file as the See & Stamp Centers so you can decide how you would like to use them :)

You can find these centers in my Year Long Bundle as well!

Monster Counting {free download}

Learning to count is extra fun with googly eyes are involved!

These adorable monsters are in need of some eyes! Have your kiddos pick a card, look at the number on the corner, and add that many eyes to the monster's face. These googly eyes are extra fun since they come in different sizes!

This activity doubles as excellent fine motor practice as well since the kiddos need to use their pincer grip to pick up the eyes. You could also add little tweezers to this center if you'd like!

Hope you enjoy!
