Thanksgiving Write the Room and More Literacy Centres

I am so happy with how our Literacy Activity time is working out! Here's the next round of Literacy Activites that we started this week.
CLASS NAMES WORD SEARCH

We had our first try at word search skills a few days ago, when completing the Four Seasons word search . This time, we are focussed on our classmates' names!

UPDATE: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centers, to make things easy for Kindergarten teachers!
The packs include literacy activities in these 5 areas of learning:
1)Writing 2)Listening to reading 3) Word work (sight words) 4) Phonics/alphabet 5) Phonemic awareness
The packs are laid out, week by week, for the entire month. They include 5 stations for students to rotate through per week, with all of the components you’ll need for each activity.
Assessment tools are included to help keep learning on track and to keep your students accountable.
Learning is spiraled throughout the month, to help students build on their prior learning. 
Check out the first pack in the series {here}
