Our fall centers just keep getting better, and our students are enjoying all the new materials and fun activities! We have such a great class that are always excited to try something new, and they make me want to give them fun centers!
Sight Word Pumpkin:
Our students had a great time searching for all the sight words written on the pumpkin. They used the whiteboards to record their answers. We had this out a few times throughout the week, and they were excited to visit it every time. It was a super easy to set up: use a Sharpie to write the sight words on the pumpkin. This activity is great for working on sight word recognition and spelling!
Beginning Sound Cover-Up:
We continued to take out the fall manipulatives this week. I love changing up the way we use our activities, and using different counters and items with a center keeps it interesting for our students. These leaves, paired with my Beginning Sound Cover-Up work mats, were a hit with our students. They have to cover the images that begin with the letter in the sun. Works on reinforcing letter recognition and beginning sounds.
Sight Word Jack-O-Lantern:
This was a new center for our students this week, and they really enjoyed making their own jack-o-lanterns using the different eye, nose and mouth pieces. Once they have completed the face, they write the sight words they used with a whiteboard marker. Then they can start all over again, and make a new jack-o-lantern! Perfect for sight word recognition and spelling! You can get this activity in my store.
Spooky Sensory Bin:
My teaching partner had this awesome sensory bin already made up from previous years. The base is dried black beans, and there are spooky items in it from the dollar store. I also put in the spider webs and pompoms. The tweezers help with their fine motor skills, and the sorting tray can be used in different ways (some of our students were sorting in it and making Halloween treats!). I love making sensory bins and our students have loved playing in them! It can work on so many skills, and they don’t even realize how much they are learning while playing.
