My Literacy Centers ran pretty smoothly again this week! It was dinosaur week this week! Always a favorite among Kinders:) Here are the literacy centers that I made to go with this unit:
In this center students sorted short vowel sounds a, i and o. They had to sound the word out and write the word on the response sheet. I have posted this center in my teacherspayteachers store: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/dinosaur-short-vowel-literacy-center
This center was SO fun! The kids LOVED it! I’m hoping to get it posted on TPT soon:) Each student got a set of dinosaur bones. The bones had a tiny word family words printed on them. They had to be paleontologists and examine the bones using magnifying glasses to discover what the word was. They then recorded their findings on the response sheet under the appropriate word family.
The 3rd center was a sight word center. The students had to put the dinosaurs’ feet on to make a word. (The 1st letter in each word is underlined to help get them started:) They then recorded the word on their sheet under 2 letter words, 3 letters or 4.
I set up a writing center as one of the “can do” choices that they could do when they were finished with their must dos. They had stamps, stencils and there were lots of labeled dino pictures posted. I always love reading what they write:)
