These centers for kindergarten are perfect for Spring! Printable and easy to prep centers for students to practice math and literacy skills.
Centers for Kindergarten
Center time in kindergarten is a time for students to develop and practice various math and ELA skills. We want center activities to be engaging and serve as an independent activity for students. During literacy and math centers, teachers are typically working in small groups. This should be a time, teachers can focus on their small group of students, while the rest of the class is working quietly. These centers for kindergarten will help keep your center time running smoothly. Plus, you can be confident that your students are continuing to learn and are staying engaged with the hands-on activities.
The center activities are super easy and quick to prep. Each center comes with an I Can card to provide students with a step-by-step guideline of how to complete the activity.
Each month includes 6 literacy centers. In April, kindergarten students will work on the following skills:
- Spelling CVCe words
- Phoneme substitution
- Identify beginning and ending sounds
- Read and write words with picture support
- Identify long vowel sounds
For the April writing center, you can choose to keep the cards with the student response page or you can turn the center into a write-the-room activity and hang the cards around the classroom.
Many of the centers are set up to be used with classroom manipulatives. This increases student engagement and can serve as an additional support for students.
Throughout April, these kindergarten math skills are practiced:
- Number bonds
- Counting on from a given number
- Combining sets to tell how many
- Tens and ones
- Counting sets and creating a bar graph
- Counting by tens
I love the use of fun mini erasers!
