April Math and Literacy Centers

I can't believe April is almost here! This year is FLYING by! I just finished prepping some fun April themed centers and I wanted to share them with you!

Math Centers:
Base Ten Butterflies
This one is hands down my favorite center for this month! The kiddos will match the wings on the butterflies to make the teen number. The base ten block is the butterfly's body! How stinkin' cute!? It also is great for self correcting as the wing colors have to match!

Hatch & Match {ten frames}
We are continuing to work hard on quickly finding ten frame matches. This is such an important skill for incoming first graders so we never stop practicing!

Hop, Skip & Jump {counting by 2s}
We've worked really hard skip counting by 5s and 10s, and now we are introducing skip counting by 2s! Some of kids totally understand and some of them need lots more practice ;)

Roll and Cover {addition to 12}
My students like to play roll and cover in partners. They roll the dice, add the dots and cover the sum. They will play this forever ;)

Eggy Equations {missing addends}
We're working hard on addition and finding missing addends. In this center, my kiddos will count eggs on each card and figure out how many more are needed to make the sum.

Spin & Subtract
Students will spin the first spinner and write the number they spun in the first box. Then spin the second spinner and write the number of flowers in the second box. They will subtract to find the difference {I teach them to put the first number in their heads and count down with each flower they touch}. Then they cover or color that many flowers on the mat. They play until all the flowers are covered.

Literacy Centers:
CVC Baskets
The kiddos will use the letter eggs to spell out the CVC word on each basket!

Egg Hunt {sight word practice}
Another write the room activity. Hang the eggs around your classroom and have your students search for them. They will record their answers based on the number of letters in each word.

Rhyming Rabbits
Match the cards that rhyme and write or draw each set of rhymes on the recording sheet. I love rhyming at this time of the year because my students start to understand word families and they get really excited when they understand why the words rhyme!

Sentence Scrambles
Using what they know about sentences {uppercase letters at the beginning, punctuation at the end}, the students will unscramble the sentences until it makes sense. Then they will record the sentences on their sheet.

Jelly Bean Sort {long and short vowels}
The students will sort pictures by their vowel sounds. It's really important that they know a vowel can make 2 (or more!) sounds.

Rain Boot Blends {r and l blends}
Blends are so tough for little ones! It's really hard for them to differentiate the two sounds. In this activity, they will add a match the rain boots by listening to the beginning blend.

  1. Wow! There are so many great ideas here. I love how each center idea uses bright colors and gets the kids to manipulate the material. The kids would have so much fun learning with these tools. I especially love the center where the students have to go on an egg hunt to find the words around the room.
