This Week's Centers {and some leprechaun fun}

 Every week, my kiddos get super excited for new literacy workshops and math centers. It is so much fun to see them so excited because I don't even think they realize how much learning they're doing when they're at the centers!
Here's what we're doing this week:
Working on real and nonsense words with word families

Beginning blends...these are giving us a fit this year!

Stretching words to spell them

Determining missing medial vowel sounds
Reading words to see if they are real or "leprechaun" words

Finding missing numbers

Working on matching numbers to 20 with the correct ten frame

Relating 3D shapes to real world objects...this is a freebie from Deeanna that you can get here

Counting objects and representing the number on a ten frame

I love this center and it will be out for a while! The kids work to match a variety of cards with the number they are equal to...this is from my friend Deeanna and you can get it here
We also started our St. Patrick's Day fun today by reading That's What Leprechauns Do. It's really a cute story that's a good introduction to learning about the legend of leprechauns. We created a tree map together then made these cute leprechauns to attach to our individual leprechauns.

These leprechauns came from Cara at The First Grade Parade

We also graphed wheteher we believed in leprechauns or not then did a little data page as a class.

You can get all the St. Pat's centers, tree map, and graph activity in my St. Pat's pack here.
I'm off to paint some "gold" for us to use in math tomorrow...hope your Monday was as good as a Monday can be :).
