Can you believe it is February?!? Where did January go?!?!
As we slide right into this next month, I am so excited to switch out and get my February Centers in my classroom! I just love February! There are so many different events going on in the month that I love to celebrate and teach. There is Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and Dental Awareness.
Since there is so much to celebrate, I have included ALL of them in my February Math and Literacy Centers!
If you have followed along in my blog, you will know that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE centers! This is not only my favorite time of day, but my students too! I swear they would rather do centers ALL DAY LONG than anything else! (Well maybe recess too!)
I enjoy centers because this is a time where I not only get to meet with my small reading groups, but it is also a time for students to get to interact with each other in small groups while working together or independently on hands-on, interactive, purposeful, and engaging activities.
My principal came in my room recently during my centers time and told me before she left that I could probably leave the room for a long time during centers time and my students wouldn’t even realize I was gone!!
They are truly so engaged in these center activities and I am so excited to share with you the activities I have in my February Centers. There is also a big FREEBIE included too! 🙂
There are 36 Math and Literacy Centers (22 Math and 14 Literacy) in my February Centers! There are tons to choose from and to differentiate.
You are probably wondering how in the world do I do all of these centers!?! I place these center activities in tubs. When students rotate to a new center they get to choose which activity they would like to work on that is at that center. If you are looking for how I introduce/run centers in my classroom, you can read about it HERE.
Each Math and Literacy center activity is aligned to the Common Core and includes:
• ‘I Can’ kid friendly posters for students
• Recording sheets for student accountability
• The Common Core Standards that each activity is aligned to
