Ok, I figured out how to start out my teacherspayteachers account. Yeah! I will still post lots of free stuff though. I have uploaded a few different literacy center units that I have completed. I will post more thematic units soon. I posted my ocean and space units on TPT too. Here are a few free downloads.
When I started thinking about what I wanted to do for Literacy Centers next year, I really wanted to create more consistency and cohesiveness for greater success.
*I started with the abc cut and paste. I did this with my kids this year when we were learning the alphabet. They love to stamp anything.
*Rainbow Words: students take 3 colored pencils, and sometimes my kids like to use crayons or markers, and trace each word 3 times creating a rainbow word
*Popcorn Sentences: student will cut out the sentence and glue it in order, then illustrate a picture based upon the sentence. These start out in order and with easier words and then evenutally become scrambled.
*Sight Word Cut, Write, Glue: My kids trace the word, write the word in marker (which anything they can use markers on, they love) and then cut and glue the sight word to match the word.
I created each unit to last about a semester and each week the same words are repeated in each unit from easier to harder. For example, the first one for each may include words such as a, like, see. The next week will include half of those words and half new words. I wanted to create more exposure to sight words and I think the consistency each wk will create more independence and sucess in centers. I hope that make sense. I think I have confused myself. LOL 🙂 Each page is from a complete unit that is between 14 and 20 pages long. Just FYI. 🙂 I like the idea of having a rainbow writing center where I know exactly what my kids will do for 14 wks, they can get used to it and be independent with this work, and it gives more exposure to reading and writing sight words.
When looking at this, it seems that scrib is having trouble with the formatting of the pages but when you download the pages, they look just like I created them. THe lines are fixed! 🙂 If you need any instructions on any of these downloads, go to my TPT site. Again, your feedback is super helpful!!! Happy Saturday!
