My OLW {one little word} for this year is “present”. I have been practicing living in the present, thinking in the present, doing in the present. It’s been AWESOME and I feel like my quality of life has increased 10-fold! My days feel longer and more fulfilling. I am enjoying everything as I am experiencing it!
That being said, I am a crazy planner. I get anxious if I’m not prepared! So although I have been working on creating February centers so that I am prepared for February, I am not letting February stress me out, just yet 😉 And I figure many of you are planners too, so if you’re looking to get prepared for {and not stressed out about!} February, I thought I’d share what I have for February centers so far 🙂

 

Here’s a peek at what each center looks like…
Greater or Less Than Goodies
Using manipulatives to compare to groups of objects.
We’re really trying hard to incorporate partner work in our activities and this would be a perfect activity for partners!
Racing Hearts
 Another
great partner activity! The students take turns rolling the dice and
coloring in the hearts to match {or using manipulatives to cover}.
Whoever covers up the last heart wins! This is a fun game that can be
played over and over, and the cute little heart dice from Target are so
fun!
Sweet Treats Train
Addition practice
“Bee”fore and After
Students
choose a bee card and record the numbers that come before and after it.
My students also love using the bee cards in number order when they
finish.
Honeycomb Counting
Using
the bee cards again, this time the kids will count on for the number
they choose. I also made a recording sheet for them to be count
backwards.
Match Makers
This
one is my most favorite!! It’s a tricky one, but my students love a
challenge! They will spin the spinner and identify the number on the
tens frame. Then they have to find the bear who is holding the number
needed to make a ten. So if they spun a 6, they would find the bear
holding the 4.
Sweet Subtraction
Solve the subtraction problems on the chocolates and place them on the correct heart.
Love Notes
I
cut apart our sight words and placed them in little envelopes. I
matched the color of the number on the envelope to color of the letters
to help them stay organized. They will unscramble the letters in the
envelope to build a sight word!
Love Letters
Sorting confusing letters!
Make n’ Bake
The students will practice reading CVC words and decide if they are real words or nonsense words.
Broken Hearts
The students will match the picture on half the heart with the correct ending sound.
Colorful Cupcakes
This is a great way to practice building sentences, reading sight words and identifying color words.

I think they are going to *love* these!

I found all the little containers and manipulatives in the Target dollar section!
You can find these centers in my TpT store!

These centers are now also available for First Graders!
