Literacy Centers, that is!
Here are 3 more literacy centers your primary students will love:
Watermelon Words is a center focused on compound words. Your students will find pairs of watermelon slices that form compound words. The words have a summer theme.
For the youngest learners, the task is to simply find the pairs. More capable students can place the 30 cards facedown in a 5x6 array and then play a game of Memory. This center includes labels for you center folder and a recording sheet. Watermelon Words literacy center can be found in its entirety in my poetry unit, Poetry Possibilities for Summer. Now, for the first time, it is offered as a stand alone product.
Lunchbox literacy center is another compound word center. Students will find pairs of lunchboxes that can form a compound word. The words in this center are all school related. A recording sheet is included, as are labels for your folder. This center is included in my Back to School Poetry Possibilties. It is now available as a stand alone product.
Flying Dragon Bingo is a versatile center focusing on initial consonant blends. You can set it up as a small group center, or use it for a whole class game. Like traditional bingo, each player has a board. The teacher or leader holds up a picture card. The students determine the initial consonant blend, covering it with a flying dragon piece. Each bingo board has the same set of consonant blends; rearranged, of course.
This center includes 26 bingo boards, 96 picture cards, and as many flying dragon markers as you need. Labels are provided for your storage folder.
