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!

Your students will have a blast orally segmenting words into syllables while participating in this center activity. Children will sort the pictures on the train cars to create a syllable train. There are trains for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 syllables. 

Here are two children clapping out the sounds in the words:
After clapping out the syllables, children add the train car to the correct engine. 

Also included in this pack, are two recording sheets for the children to record how many syllables are in some of the words. 

We hope your children have fun clapping out syllables and assembling the syllable trains! Enjoy!

"Icy Equations" is a winter-themed math lesson that gives your students addition practice with addends to five and sums to ten or addends to ten and sums to twenty. This is a very engaging lesson that we have found to be best done in small groups of two or three children. 

Each group will have the following materials:
1. a group of cards with sets of varying amounts
2. a group of cards with numerals on them
3. addition math strips
4. dry erase markers

Here, the children have their three addition strips and materials set up and ready to go! First, they pick two sets to place on the the first strip. There are spaces on the strip for them to put the cards labeled Set 1 & Set 2.

Next, the children add numerals to complete a number sentence using words. Here you see "3 and 1 is 4." We encourage the children to read the sentence out loud and to check their answer with the sets above.

Last, the children write the numbers on the last math strip to construct a sentence using symbols. Love this great teamwork!!


Here are the three math strips completed:

We have also included two different assessments for you to choose from to check student learning. 
This lesson is full of hands-on and cooperative learning. We hope your students have fun with it!

Our students LOVE Snowy Sets and Sums! It allows the children to work on their additional 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 adding to 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!

Who doesn't love all the old lady books by Lucille Colandro? Our children LOVE them and get so excited when we pull out another one to read.

In this pack you will find an adorable old lady and story pieces for retelling. The children will put the available pieces into the cold lady's belly as they sequence the pictures from the story. Both color and black and white pieces are included.

There are also three different writing journals included as a follow up to the book. One journal can be used to encourage children to extend the story by asking them what the old lady could swallow next and why. Another journal encourages them to use their creativity to tell why the cold lady might have swallowed some snow. A final journal asks the children to state their favorite part of the story and tell why they liked it best.

We have also included a mini reproducible book. Students will fill in missing words by using picture clues and recalling story events. 

Children can also practice their data collection and graphing using the included spinner, data collection page, and graph. We attach plastic spinners and reuse them each year, but a makeshift spinner can also be made with a pencil and paperclip for each group.


Do you want to build a snowman? As an added bonus we included pieces the children can use to build a snowman of their own! Enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by and Happy New Year to all of you!
