Our students just LOVE these fun literacy centers to practice their beginning, middle, and ending sounds. The super cute groundhog clipart from Scrappin' Doodles is the best!

Beginning Sounds
There are 26 burrows and groundhogs included in this center. Each burrow has a letter on it and each groundhog has a picture of an object. The children have to identify each picture and determine the beginning (initial) sound of each and then match it to the correct burrow.


We have also included a recording sheet for the children to write the beginning sound next to the correct picture.


CVC Words and Medial Sounds
This is a great CVC center where the children will practice their medial vowel sounds. Each burrow has three adorable groundhogs popping out of their burrow. Each groundhog has a letter on their belly and a picture on the burrow. In order to complete the CVC word, children must isolate the medial vowel and put the correct groundhog in the burrow with the others.

Children will then record their answers on the recording 
sheets we have provided. In the version pictured below, the children will only have to complete the medial vowel sound.

In this version of the recording sheet, children will record the whole word by writing the initial, medial, and final sounds.

Ending Sounds
Children will identify the picture on each groundhog's shadow. They should say the word to determine the ending sound that is heard in each word. They will then match a groundhog to the shadow that has a letter that corresponds to the ending sound heard.

Children will also complete the recording sheet by 
writing in the final sound of each word. 

Thanks for stopping by! We hope you and your students enjoy these centers as much as ours do! Happy (almost) Groundhog Day!

Our students LOVE Snowy Sets and Sums! It allows the children to work on their addition skills in a fun way. First, children spin one of the spinners provided in the pack:


This number tells the children how many counters they will put into a cup to shake. This allows for practice of adding a variety of sums up to ten. Here is an example of one set of two-sided counters provided in this pack:

Children will shake and dump the counters out of their cup. They will then put the counters on the ten frame. We have our children group the counters that are the same together on the ten frames so there are two distinct sets to add together easily.

Children will then record the number sentences on the recording sheet:

We have also included exploration, modeling, and an assessment as part of this pack.
We hope your students enjoy working on their addition with Snowy Sets and Sums!

Polar Bear Party is a pack full of thematic lessons and center materials for your students. We've included a variety of activities for you!

There are writing prompts included for the stories, Dear Polar Bear, Little Polar Bear, and Irving and Muktuk. These are three of our favorite polar bear stories to read to our children!


Children love this literacy center where they read words around the room and record one word for each letter that spells "polar bear" vertically. 

We have included a sight word game similar to "Go Fish" called "Gone Fishin" where children will deal cards, read sight words, while trying to make matches. It is great practice reading their high frequency words as they ask their partner if they have "what" or "did," etc.


These adorable polar bears help the children practice counting sets and writing addition equations! We have included exploration, modeling, cooperative group practice, an individual assessment, and a matching center for one or more days of math time fun!





Your students can practice sorting these polar bears by one or more attributes with these card sets. These polar bears have different colors, sizes, cocoa stirs, and are sitting different directions. Lots to look at to practice visual discrimination and sorting by various attributes.

We use this chart to record what children know and want to know before we teach them about polar bears. Then, we revisit the chart at the end of the unit to discover all they have learned! We have included a small version to use with a document camera or overhead plus a larger version to piece together into a poster also.

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with us today. We hope you love these adorable polar bear activities!
Happy New Year! Have a great week!

Your children will have fun practicing ABC order with these adorable winter cards and words. They can work with a partner or by themselves. 

Children will identify the name of the picture shown. They will say the word out loud to identify the beginning sound of the word. Using the letters provided, children will place the letter at the beginning of the word and then read the word to check the correct letter has been chosen.


We just love interactive books! The children enjoy coloring the pictures to help provide the illustrations for each page. Children will read each sentence, paying close attention to the underlined word(s). They will then need to find the picture that matches and add it to the book. They can then read the book to themselves or to a friend! We love to read!

This "Super Snowman" mini book will provide practice with concepts of print and beginning reading skills. Children will have a blast reading about how to build a snowman and will be ready to build their own when the snow begins to fall!

We have included both a colored version and a black and white version for you. Children will use the letters from the word "snowflakes" to make new words. The children are able to manipulate the letters which is a big help! When they make a new word, they will record it on the sheet provided. There are so many fun things you can do with this activity! 


These adorable snowmen are alike but yet so different. Children will lay the snowman out on the carpet so they can see them all clearly. They will then read the sentences that are included one at a time and match it to the correct snowman. The sentences have to do with their mittens, their scarf, or even their hat. For example: "I have four red buttons." 


Here is another fun game for your children to play, Chilly Challenge Memory Game. All the cards have winter-themed words on them! Who doesn't enjoy a fun game of memory?

We have also included a favorite of all five year olds we know, Write the Room! Seriously, they love it!! We have included the words snowflakes and snowmen. The children walk around the room looking for words that start with each letter shown.When they find a word, they write it on the lines provided. 


These pages are a great addition to your centers and will help encourage writing in a fun way! They can practice handwriting, spelling, sentence writing, and story writing.


We have been working on number sentences and number stories a lot lately and the children are really starting to grasp the concept. We made this adorable center to help reinforce these skills in a fun way. These snowman are feeling cold out in the snow without a warm hat on their head! So, the children will come to the rescue and find that perfect hat! Children will count the buttons on the snowmen to add the sets of colors and find the correct sum of all the buttons together. Then, they will find the hat with the correct number sentence and place it on each snowman's head. Now the snowmen are ready to face the cold winter days!

These Roll and Color activities are favorites in our classrooms! The children will roll two dice, count and add the dots on the two dice all together. They will then color the part of their snowman that has the numeral that is the sum of the two dice. Children will continue to play by taking turns and coloring each part of the snowman one at a time. If a part of the snowman is already colored, then the child who rolled must skip their turn. Children will be learning through counting and adding and having some plain 'ol fun. Some of the children can get very competitive while playing their friends!

Children will take turns rolling the cube and tallying each picture that is rolled on their recording sheet. After taking several turns each children will count up their tally marks and write the numeral that shows how many times they rolled each picture. They will then transfer the data onto a graph and then interpret that data by answering several questions. 

Children can practice their patterning skills in this colorful center! We have included pattern cards to help the children build patterns using the winter-themed clipart or they can use the cards provided and make up their own patterns!
