Literacy Centers!

Hi friends! I hope you are having an excellent week! Tomorrow is Friday so it can only go up from here 🙂 I wanted to share with you a few of my current literacy centers.  We are working a lot on nonsense words, short/long vowels, & parts of speech. 
Parts of Speech Literacy Sort-  My kiddos have loved having this sort during literacy centers.  Last year we were a little shaky on adjectives, but this year with the help of great Tpt Packets & Whole Brain Teaching my kiddos know their nouns, verbs, & adjectives very well.  In this activity students sort the ice cream into nouns, verbs, and adjectives.  Students then record their answers onto the corresponding recording sheet {see below}.

Brown Bag Special: Nonsense vs Real Words
Oh yeah nothing like working at McDonald’s while sorting nonsense words 🙂  Students simply sort the french fries into the real or nonsense words brown bag.  After the sorting is completed students write their answers on the corresponding recording sheet {see below}.
Brown Bag Special: Short Vowels vs Long Vowels

Nonsense vs Real Word
This is a literacy center activity I came up with last year!  It is one of my favorites 🙂  Below I will explain how to set up your binder. 
Above you can see the supplies you will need: 3 whole punch, binder, scissors, & nonsense sheets from the packet.
3 whole punch the nonsense sheets and place them in the binder.
Cut the nonsense sheet into 3 equal parts.
The students turn the sheets {in no order}.  They can turn just the first column, the middle column, the last column, or a combination of all three.  You can see above an example of one of my students.  The student write the letters and circles yes if the word is real.
