Instagram Posts of the Week #44 – word family spin, pineapple number sense, story writing center, and more!

Take a look at our kindergarten classroom centers. Pineapple number sense workmats, alligator and crocodile sensory bin, story writing literacy center, and word family spinners.

We have been having so much fun these past few weeks in the classroom, we are getting excited about the chick eggs in our incubator (more to come on that, so make sure you are following me here!), we are getting caterpillars, and we are having a Pirate Day!

I love this time of the year, and here are a few things that we got up to this week:

1. Word family spin

Word Family Spin literacy center for kindergarten. Read and write real or nonsense words with this fun and engaging activity.

Our students are doing such a great job stretching out and reading short words. We challenged them with this word family activity to spin and add letters or blends to the word family. Then the students have to decide if the word is real or nonsense.

This was such a great way to practice reading, and you can get it in my store if you would like to try it with your students:

2. Pineapple Number Mats

pineapple number mats to work on number sense, number formation and decomposing numbers for kindergarten math centers.

These cute pineapple number work mats are a great way to work on number sense. Students have to show the number in the ten frame, trace the number and decompose the number. Our students loved using the pineapple erasers to fill in the ten frame (they are from the dollar store), and they smell so good!

You can get these work mats in my store:

3. Finish the Story…

Finish the Story writing center for kindergarten writer's workshop. Have students practice writing stories and making sure they have all the story elements they need.

As we only have a a few weeks left of school, we have been pushing our students to do their best with their writing. They have come such a long way, and they are capable of doing some amazing writing. These story starter cards are really good for getting the students to write stories on their own.

I loved reading all their stories and they were so proud of their writing.

If you want to try these out with your students, you can find this activity in my store:

4. Alligator and Crocodile Sensory Bin

Alligator and crocodile sensory bin idea for kindergarten

Our students have been asking some questions about crocodiles and alligators. We made up this sensory bin so students could make their own habitat for them to live in.

We used dried black beans and Lima beans, wood slices, rocks and green pasta as the base. Our students loved it!
