Spring Literacy Center Ideas! Plus a Freebie!

Monday, April 1, 2013



Well I’m all moved in my temporary classroom! The walls are all bulletin board so I have a lot to get decorated. Right now it looks a little boring! I’ll only be here two and half months so I’m not going to go too crazy. This past week we learned about “Living things that come from eggs” Here are some of our Literacy center activities!


Egg Rhymes! Use a sharpie to write the rhyme on one half of the egg and right the onset on the other. I made 6 different eggs and the children write them in their “Chick likes to Rhyme” book! 


I put the these fun bunny hats out and they can wear them when they do activities at this table!


When children are finished with their activities at this table they can Write the Room


We sequenced a chicks little life and glued it on register tape. Next the children roll it up and put in a plastic egg. For fun I added a little yellow chick inside the eggs!




Spring is here thinking map! We brainstormed what happens in the spring then they used their thinking map to complete their napkin book. Spring thinking map freebie!


My kids could write anything they wanted about spring in their books they came out really cute!


It was and “eggy” week so we also wrote a little booklet about other animals that come from eggs.


To end out the week we made

yummy eggs in a nest! Check back soon I’m going to be giving out a freebie everyday this week!
