In my previous post, I talked about “Staple” Literacy Centers. These are centers that I can pull out throughout the year and use. I also use these centers in my “I’m Finished Bin”. When a student is finished with their work, they can get a station to work at their seat quietly. I really love this idea, especially for math. I always a have a few that I have to really keep challenging them!
One of my FAVORITE “Staple” packets is from Anna Brantley‘s Fun-in-the-Sun-Math-and-Literacy-Center-Packet. I love this packet because it includes both Short and Long Vowels, Time AND Money, and the sentence scrambles are amazing! I love packets that include a variety of popular skills, because I can use them for so many things! She has TONS of great products, but this my favorite!
Another great one from the none other than Cara Carroll is her Ready-Set-Learn-Back-To-School-Math-Literacy-Activities packet! This one is great because it focuses on skills that are often assumed. Sometimes teachers “skip” basic steps, and before you know it, students get to third grade and can’t spell the word “twelve”! This packet is great for basic skills that sometimes we assume kids know, when in actuality they do not 🙂 Go check it out..now 🙂
Another great “staple” packet is my Parts-of-Speech-Mini-Packet. This packet includes 4 literacy centers, 6 printables, and 6 mini anchor charts!
