Kindergarten Centers

With school around the corner, I would love to offer a glimpse into some of the centers I have been making over the summer!

I definitely hit up the Dollar Tree for TONS of inexpensive supplies! Most of these can be stored in ziploc baggies or file folders for easy storage.

Here are two different ways I prepared some DIY alphabet manipulatives:

I cut out the labels on tons of our cereal boxes and those sorts of packages. I especially love the letters from the Cheerios, Rice Krispies, and Premium saltine crackers because they are easy to read and the perfect size! I used my alphabet line to help lay them out and get them all organized!


Then I purchased some alphabet stickers and stuck them to milk caps for another versatile manipulative!

Here are some simple math centers for the beginning of the year:

From the Dollar Tree, I purchased these cute cupcake cutouts and pompoms. I used a sharpie to mark numerals and dots for "sprinkles" on the cupcakes. Another easy center for the first part of the year!

I also purchased the pencil-star cutouts from Dollar Tree, and I pasted ten frames on the pencil cutouts and numerals on the stars for matching.

With the popsicle sticks from Dollar Tree, I used various colored markers to create patterns that students can match.

These printable apple-themed math centers are perfect for back-to-school and fall unit studies. There are several print-and-go math activities if you running short on time!

This is one of my favorite printables for Kindergarten geometry math work! It is so versatile! Students love playing Memory matching games!

This is another fun matching center for 2d and 3d shapes!

You can also mix things up by adding in your pattern blocks or 3d manipulatives for students to sort!

I also purchased the colored foam sheets from Dollar Tree and made this touchpoint activity. Students just roll the dice and then place buttons (or pompoms) on the touchpoints for that number.

I created an ice cream sprinkle file folder activity (which I still need to add to my TpT store)! Using colorful dry erase markers, students just draw the correct number of sprinkles!

Great for fall semester units, this farm printable pack includes lots of activities for centers, including math, literacy, and word work stations!

Using the same set of foam sheets, I made some fun word family dominoes, which I think the students will really enjoy playing in pairs later this semester!

Each sheet made four dominoes, just to get an idea for size!

I hope you found some ideas that might work for you! I will add more as I finish them. If you have any questions or any ideas to add, please feel free to do so in the comments! Have a great year!

A Simple Summer Paper Project for Kids

I don't know about you, but the summer heat is officially in full force here! Here's a simple yet creative and colorful indoor project for kids of all ages! 

easy simple kid activity construction scrapbook paper kids

1. Grab a stack of construction paper (or even scraps), scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, or whatever you can find around the house! Let the kids pick out their favorites!

2. Find various sizes of circles around the house (lids, etc.) to trace onto the papers. Cut out circles, ovals, petals, and/or whatever floats your boat. The more, the merrier! 

3. Organize your shapes into piles of small, medium, and large. 

4. On a large sheet of construction paper, use a green marker to draw stems of various lengths.


5. Using a glue stick, glue a large shape onto the tops of the stems.

6. Then, glue a medium shape on top of the large shapes. 

7. Finally, glue a small one in the center of each flower.

You can always add more layers or add leaves. Happy creating!
