We had a "snow/ice" day here in Charleston yesterday. You northerners would laugh if you saw- there was literally nothing, BUT in defense of our sweet southern souls we just aren't equipped for icy conditions here! The unexpected day gave me the time I needed to finish these March Centers for 2nd graders. I feel like I say this every time, but y'all I think I get better at this gig with each packet.
I really do try and keep things fresh and unique because I get bored easily! I also keep all my learners in mind and try to address the needs of my Highs and my Lows.
Vocabulary Puzzlers- The vocabulary puzzlers are a HUGE hit in my room. The kids will go back to them several times after they have completed them!
Spring Speech Bubbles- We are working hard to add dialogue into our realistic fiction pieces in writing so I wanted to give them a little guided practice through centers.
Adverbs in Action- are brand new to us, so I kept that very basic.
Shy Leprechauns- Long "i" words- I love this station. My kids are seriously fantastic readers, but they just need more practice (tons more practice) in the phonics department. This station is perfect for that!
Lying Lions- We have been working on homophones all year. This sort involves the students deciphering correct/incorrect usage of the homophones. I include my homophones chart just in case you need it!
Four Syllable Word Attack- I have a few students who look at look words and get that deer in headlights look. You KNOW what I am talking about! This center is meant to help them break the long words apart and then self check with a hidden picture!
March Madness- Time, time, time! These stations reinforce time to five minutes!
March Measurement- We finished our measurement unit about two weeks ago so this center will make sure my kids don't get too rusty on the skill!
Party Time- 3 Digit Addition and Subtraction- Nothing fancy- just straight practice and matching for self-checking!
Balance the Court- This center will be used in small group with me. It is a great way to stretch those high kids. Finding the missing addend in an equation with another equation on the other side! Phew!
If you are a first grade teacher--- here is your first grade March Centers:
I tried to hit all the big holidays in March because there is just TOO much fun stuff to only focus on St. Patrick's Day! You can find that unit and my other units in my store on sale today and tomorrow. The TPT sale is HERE!
