Acorns keep falling on my head! Really! Our oak trees are dropping acorns like a rainstorm. Ouch! But, kind of like Newton and his apple, those pecks on the head inspired me to create some acorn centers.
One of the centers is Acorn Patterns. There are 2 sizes of acorns and each size points in 4 different directions. By providing that number of variables, it will be easy to differentiate instruction for my students. They can make a simple a-b-a-b pattern with sizes. Or, I can challenge my G/T students to create something far more complex. Because the acorns are uncolored, students can make even more complicated patterns by the way they color them.
You can grab a copy of my Acorn Pattern math center at Google Docs.
In addition to the math center, I made 3 literacy centers: Collecting Acorns (compound word match), Acorn Contractions, and Acorns & Leaves (long vowel sort). If you like the patterning center, and I hope you do, you can get the whole set on TpT.
