LITTLES LOVE SUMMER MATH & LITERACY CENTERS are perfect for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten littles. This pack is filled with fun, hands-on activities + a book project to help your little ones build beginning math & literacy skills.
15 CENTERS: Check out the pictures above to see each activity. You can also check out THIS POST for more details. Each activity comes with detailed directions, supply list, and extension activities.
Summer Word Cards: Includes 15 summer-themed word cards. Each word comes in 4 different fonts: Uppercase, lowercase, uppercase traceable, and lowercase traceable. Also comes with a set of just the words (uppercase and lowercase) and just the pictures (giving students the chance to match them up). The possibilities with these cards are endless! Also includes 3 activity pages for students to write these words if you choose to do a “Write the Room” activity with them and 1 page of pictures for them to “Color the Room.”
A Day at the Beach Letter Sort: Sort the letters in a variety of ways: uppercase vs. lowercase, in my name vs. not in my name, holes vs. no holes, and curvy lines vs. straight lines vs. both. A set of uppercase letters and a set of lowercase letters are included.
Beginning Sounds Ice Cream Clip Cards: Includes 1 ice cream cone for each letter. Each cone has 4 ice cream scoops on top. Clip the clothespins to the pictures that start with the letter on the cone. There are 2 pictures to clip on each cone.
Fishing for Rhymes: Match the word on the fishing pole to the rhyming word on the fish. Includes 24 fishing pole/fish matches and an activity page for little ones to complete about rhyming.
Connect the Animals: Includes 3 different activities: Tracing the lines to connect the animals, creating your own lines to connect the animals (with pencil or out of objects like beans or play dough), and cutting along the lines. Includes color and black/white options for each of the activities.
Build-a-Word: CVC Words: Use the alphabet letters from “A Day at the Beach Letter Sort” or any alphabet letters you have to build CVC words. You’ll build the words that name the pictures on each card. (Each card has 3 words to build.) You can also build other words, too. Includes 20 cards (4 cards for each vowel). Also includes an activity page to record your answers.
Syllable Camping: Sort the camping cards into groups based on the number of syllables in each word (up to 4 syllables). Includes 24 cards to sort. Also includes a duplicate set of cards that has a picture clue in the upper right-hand corner of the card to give little ones a hint. Great for those who struggle to hear the syllables in the words. Also includes a syllable activity page for little ones to complete.
Sprinkle Writing: Includes all uppercase letters on ice cream scoops and lowercase letters on ice cream cones. Match the uppercase and lowercase letters together, then write the letters in a tray of sprinkles. Great way to practice letter recognition and fine motor skills.
