 Alright, let’s talk CENTERS!  If you have followed me very long then you have probably seen my Themed Literacy and Math Centers!  I have these for K-2!  Today I will be sharing an up close look of my K-1 Valentine’s centers! The centers are accompanied with recording sheets and always offer a color and black/white version! I have two sets of centers for each grade level.  The difference between the two bundles is the themes covered.  The Valentine’s centers are in Set 2 of Kinder and Set 2 of First Grade!
