Get Centers Ready for Back to School!

back to school centers for kindergarten. Math and literacy activity ideas for teachers


Back to School: Get your math and literacy centers ready for Back to School. Ideas for activities that will take you through the whole year.

Over summer break, I like to slowly get new centers ready for the new school year. I rotate through centers daily, so I like having a good variety to choose from.

My Ultimate Guide to Kindergarten Centers is a great place to start if you want to know more about how it works in my classroom.

Are you thinking about some new centers for back to school? Here are a few ideas to get the school year started:

Memory Books and Journals

Kindergarten memory journals and books for beginning writers and early writers. Monthly writing activity for kindergarten students to make a book at the end of the year to show their progress.

The beginning of the year is the perfect time to start your Memory Journals or Books. Students make one page a month, and at the end of the school year, you have a whole book to send home to families.

These are always a big hit with families, and I love seeing students’ progress throughout the year. To see how I use this monthly writing activity, click through to this blog post.

Sight Word Activities

Kindergarten sight word literacy centers to practice sight word recognition and spelling. A fun and easy way to work on sight words the whole year.

We will be using these activities every week to reinforce the sight words we are working on. I teach my students how to use these activities once, and then I rotate through them and they know how to complete them.

There are 3 different sight word activities that you can buy individually or as a set. They are perfect to use all year, and students love the hands-on way to practice sight words.

Math Sensory Bins

Number sense sensory bin for spring. Practice using tally marks in a fun cloud inspired sensory bin.

I change the sensory bin every week, and I focus on basic number sense skills at the beginning of the year- so this is a perfect set! There are 10 different sets with different options for recording sheets too! Work on numbers, tallies or ten frames.

Easy Print and Prep Math

Teaching time in kindergarten with hands-on, fun centers and activities. Perfect for math centers to teach time to the hour and half-hour.

At the beginning of the year, I like to prep new math activities that I can use over and over again. That’s why I made these Easy Print and Prep activities.

Teach symmetry to kindergarten students with these fun, hands-on math activities. Work on making pictures symmetrical with these centers, and make a line of symmetry.

Each math strain is covered in the Easy Print and Prep sets. You can buy them individually, or you can buy them as a bundle and save!

Kindergarten money activities to reinforce U.S. and Canadian coins. Teaches to identify coins, coin values and adding coins.

The centers that are included are fun for students, and will take you through the whole year!
