I’m always looking for fun, new, hands-on centers for our kindergarten class. I love fall and I am always so inspired by the scents and colours that come along with it. Here are a few ideas of centers that you can incorporate in your classroom! Make sure you read until the end of the post to grab a fall sensory bin freebie!
Fall Colo(u)rs Book
Our students love to colour this year! They gravitate towards any art or colouring activity, and they are loving these colour books. We made our fall book, and they are a great way to reinforce colour words with your students.
Can you Find the Acorn?
This is a fun game that can be played as a whole group, or can be a center for your students to play in pairs. One student hides the acorn behind a number while the rest of the students close their eyes. Then, students have to take turns guessing which number the acorn is hiding behind. This pack includes numbers to 20, ten frames and tallies so you can change it up to match what you are working on in class!
We changed up our salt trays with the season too!
For 3 of our trays, I added some pumpkin spice to it and it smells delicious!
For the other 3 trays, I did a mix of red, orange and yellow sprinkles. Our students practiced writing sight words and letters in them using a cinnamon stick! The letter and sight word leaves are from my Falling Leaves literacy pack:
Spin a Number
We have been using these Spin a Number work mats to reinforce numbers and how we can show them in different ways. At the beginning of the year we like to focus on ten frames, tallies and dot patterns. This is a great math center for this time of the year!
Fall Sensory Bin
We put out this I Spy sensory bin, and our students love it! They had to find various items in the bin, then trace the item’s name on the recording sheet. They had a great time searching through the fall items! You can get this recording sheet as a free download here:
