Usually I can trust that Staples will be the first retailer advertising the dreaded 'Back-to-School' sales, but this year I was actually getting catalogs in JUNE for back-to-school sales... JUNE PEOPLE! I love back-to-school, but I usually given myself a few weeks of summer r&r before starting my shopping. This year, I'm trying out some new back-to-school centers to help with letter identification and number recognition. Here are a few of my favorite centers from my new Back-to-School Bundle!
In this center, students use tweezers to match numbers and their quantities. They pick up seeds with their tweezers and place the same number of seeds as the number on the watermelon. I use this with my guided math groups for fast finishers as well as my RTI groups.
