Centers and More Centers!

Since school let out I have really been focusing on adding some new products and updating current products.  I found some really cute clip art at:

As I perused their inventory, center ideas were coming to me like crazy! I stopped myself before draining my pocketbook but came away with lots of ideas and clip art!

My favorite clip art was the Scrabble tiles art. Simple clip art, but the ways to use it in the classroom are endless!
 



 There are so many ways you can use these tiles for both literacy, spelling, and math skill practice. It works great from the primary grades through the intermediate grades.

I loved the building opportunities with the S'mores and Ice Cream clip art. It allows students to build with the manipulatives to reinforce math and literacy skills.








You can get the full set of Long Vowel Activities or buy it in smaller increments for the long vowel combination of your choice. EA, EE, AI, OA, and OO all available individually. 



For sight word and sentence building activities I created:

This center contains the complete 220 word Dolch List plus 95 common nouns for students to practice building sentences with familiar words.


 Students can make very basic sentences or elaborate sentences by building onto their trains. Also provides good practice with using proper punctuation marks.

I've added all of these centers within the last month to my center inventory to join Cruisin' with the Magic E! and Dog Gone Good Contractions.



If you are looking for some new centers for your classroom check these out. Kids will love the super cute clip art while reinforcing the skills they are working on.

  1. Great minds think alike I just bought the scrabble tile alpha last night. I have family coming to visit or I would be playing around with some ideas too! I've added yours to my wish list!
