Our students LOVE these scrambled spring sentences! The children look at a scene and unscramble the words to make a sentence or a question that matches. We have included movable words to help them build the sentences (if the children need them). We have also included two different types of recording sheets to meet your needs.

The scene, the movable words, and the recording cards are all color coded for the children to easily identify which words go with the correct scene.

Here is a child reading the words on her card.
Now you can see her moving the words to form a sentence.
She is recording her sentence on the matching card.
The final product:
Here are more children working on the scrambled sentences and using a different recording sheet that is also provided in this pack.
These spring sentences are a great center for your children to practice their sight words, their knowledge of putting sentences together, and their handwriting.
The children will need to reread their sentences to make sure they make sense. If not, they will need to move some of the words around and try again.

Some children will surprise you and not use the movable words to build the sentences!
Happy Spring!
We hope you enjoy this fun center! Have a great week!

Everyone loves the "Little Old Lady" books by Lucille Colandro, children and teachers both. This product is a great companion to There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover! by Lucille Colandro. This product includes materials to help children retell the story by putting the objects she swallowed in her belly one by one. We have also included several response journals for you to use as well a skills based math game.
We have included retelling pieces for this story for you in both color and black and white. The children can make their own old ladies to aid in retelling or you can make the color version to use year after year. While reading the story, ask children to pay particular attention to the order of events. If you have extra copies of the story, children can look back in the story to help them with the sequencing of their story pieces. 


After the pieces are in the correct order, children can start to retell their story by putting the pieces into the old lady's belly.

The old lady danced with a leprechaun and out popped a rainbow!
We have included three different journals for  you to choose from: Why do you think the old lady swallowed a clover?
What was your favorite part of the story and why?
What do you think the old lady will swallow next?
Magical Math is a great game to help review and reinforce the math skills that have been taught throughout the school year.
Children will take turns choosing a card from the top of the pile, reading the card, and then answering the math problem. 
If they get the correct answer, they can move their marker the correct number of spaces. 
Below are some examples of the cards that are included in the game and the various questions that are asked.
We have also included some specialty cards. Some of them are lucky and some not so much! Keep your eye out!

Thanks for visiting again this week. We hope your enjoy our retelling and math activity to go along with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover. Have a great week!

Happy March to you! With St. Patrick's Day coming up we thought we would mark down our Shamrock Centers this week. We have included several centers for both reading and math.
Here is a look at the centers in action in our classrooms:

This is a fun way to practice sight words!! Each card has a sight word on it that is all mixed up. The children need to figure out which sight word it is and write the word on the provided recording sheet. We have also included movable letters for the children to manipulate to help them out.



In this center, children will read each card to determine if what they are reading is a complete sentence or not. They will then sort them under the appropriate headings.

This center is among the children's favorites in our classrooms. They love to use the magnifying glass to find the hidden words. In this version, all the words are St. Patrick's Day related. The children use a dry erase marker to record all the words they find. 
The children love walking around the classroom looking for words that begin with the letters that make up theme related words. We have two versions included in this pack: leprechaun and shamrocks.

There are some adorable animals helping the children learn about place value in this center. The children should read the card to determine how many tens and ones each animal has. They can show this on the math mat we have provided using base ten blocks. Once the child has determined what the number is, they can write it onto the recording sheet.

This math center gives children practice with those tricky hundreds chart mystery numbers. They can place any numeral in the center and use their knowledge of the hundreds chart to fill in the other spaces. This can also be differentiated by controlling the number cards children can choose from, having them complete with dry erase markers instead, and so on.

All the children need here is a paper, pencil and/or crayons, and two dice to roll a leprechaun for St Patrick's Day! They can roll two dotted dice, a numeral die and a dotted die, or two numeral dice to make this game fit the different levels of learners in your classroom! Add up the sets and/or numerals on each die, find the sum, and color away. Our children LOVE thematic roll-a-picture activities in our classrooms!



We hope you and your children will love these literacy and math centers for St. Patrick's Day!  

(And if they're anything like our students are with all of our thematic centers, they won't want to you pack them up after the month is over!)
