More Pinterest-Inspired Creations

While cruising around Pinterest, I found a couple of great activities to use for Kindergarten activity centres.

CLOTHESPIN COUNTING
Wondering what to do with the extra two thousand Highlights stickers you have accumulated? Here's a great hands-on activity to practice counting.

ORDINAL NUMBERS
I found this great idea on Pinterest that comes from Tunstall Times!
You can use up more stickers making some ordinal number strips. Place stickers across a strip of heavy duty paper, grab a clothespin, and you're all set. Here the clothespin is showing the sticker in 5th place.
*You can even use stickers that go with your unit topic to make it more thematic.

I also got busy creating the following activities. They will be used as my first Literacy Centres. Students will use magnetic letters or letter tiles to complete these tasks!

MISSING LETTERS:
uppercase & lowercase

LETTER SOUNDS:
beginning sounds

vowel sounds

ending sounds

The above activities and more are available {here}.
The set includes practice with:
beginning sounds
ending sounds
vowel sounds
CVC words
alphabetical order/missing letters
  
Then I got busy making a few activities that will be used as my first Math Centres. Students will complete the tasks using magnetic numbers or number tiles.

MISSING NUMBERS

COUNTING


NUMBER WORDS
These number activities can be found {here}.

Anita,
Thanks so much for sparking my creative ways of using these ideas. I have already called my co-workers on these goodies and emailed to my director as well (she will need to purchase some magnetic stripping for my extension of ideas thanks to YOU! I have a Pre-K classroom!
