Fall Math and Literacy Centers for October is packed full of fun hands on centers that will keep children busy all fall long. It ties into the common core, but more importantly is developmentally appropriate. The boys and girls will love all of the fun colorful graphics!
Most kids know the difference between letters and numbers at this point, so Nocturnal Letters or Numbers is a great review. I love that the students practice writing numbers and letters AND discuss nocturnal animals.
During October, I like to spend a lot of time on the alphabet. The boys and girls know around 20 uppercase and 20 lowercase letters and are trying to make connections with the last 6. I like to do a lot of activities where the boys and girls make connections between the uppercase and lowercase letters. They love this cute bat match-up.
We work on rhyming throughout the year. Any time they can use the dabbers they are thrilled. The boys and girls will find the matching rhyming pictures in each set.
Students are starting to understand the difference between words and a sentence. The boys and girls can practice pointing at words and count how many words are in each sentence.
