Letter Matching Freebie!

I found this great activity on Pinterest.  I thought it was a great literacy center.  I immediately went to the store for spoons.  Be careful when buying spoons, the clear spoons tend to be larger than the white spoons.  I found clear spoons that were the correct size at The Dollar Tree.  Hope this helps. 
I wrote the capital letter at the top of the white spoon.  I then wrote the lowercase letter on the clear spoon.  The students will match the capital and lowercase letters by laying the correct clear spoon on top of the white spoon.

I love to have a follow-up activity sheet for the students to do when finished with their activity. While I am working with a small group, the students must be accountable for their time. They know they will have to turn in their activity sheet at the end of literacy centers.  The activity sheet should be run front to back.  Their are two options.  One activity sheet has the capital letters and the students must write in the lowercase letters.  The other option has the lowercase letters.  If you are interested in this literacy center you can get the activity sheets HERE!

New Alphabet and Number Wall Cards

I was in need of some new alphabet and number cards for my room.  I wanted to include diagraphs so I had to make my own.  I made three sets, one in red gingham, one with animal jungle prints and one that is bright primary colors.  I plan to use them as wall cards, flash cards and to start my word wall.
If you are in need of new cards check them out here in my TPT store.

New Literacy Centers!

I needed to replace some of my literacy centers that I use for the begining of the year.  When creating these centers I made sure that they were not theme based so I can use them throughout the year as needed.  You can find them HERE at my TPT Store.
