Christmas Centers for Firsties!



I could not love Christmas time more! 
I love Christmas centers during this time, too.
I always tie one of the centers into our Daily Rotations (mix of centers and Daily 5). Then, the very last week, we will have a few days of just Christmas centers!

First step- print in color, laminate, bag up, send home to amazing willing mamas who love helping their child's class! I love having moms to help me out this year. It makes my life 12x easier!

Then the next day, they come back like this! 



Here are a few of the center packs I've been using! 

I'll start with a FREEBIE!!

This freebie comes with many pages of sight words to play a 'buzz' game with. If they pull out the sight word and read it, they can keep it. If they pull a gingerbread man, they have to put all their cards back!! 


This pack is a K/1 pack!

 This pack is geared more towards 1/2, but there are definitely many kids in my first grade room who can certainly handle all of these centers!

Nonsense vs. Real words.
The kids love those!

  1. This just breaks my heart. I'm glad to see that you and your community are pulling together to help this family out. I'm sharing this on my Facebook page and emailing the K-3 teachers at my school.
