I don’t know about you, but when I start the year off feeling ready to go, it feels GREAT. Less stress, and more time to devote to my students.
These centers save tons of prep time, and since several centers are a good fit for both pre-k and kindergarten, it means you can differentiate for your kids too. Score!
These Back to School centers are jam packed with literacy activities for the start of the year, including:
- ABC clip cards
- Emergent reader (2 levels)
- Editable name tracing strips
- Name building and learning activities
- Letter identification
- ABC puzzles

Plus, at the end of the file, all of the color items also come in black and white!
