Back to School Box Centers


These box centers are an amazing resource to add to your math and literacy centers this Back to School season!

Designed for Pre-K and Kindergarten, box centers are perfect for independent classroom centers OR for small groups, too!

⭐SAVE BIG with the Year-Long Bundle

This pack of Back to School box centers is designed to need minimal supplies and be super easy to use while helping your students practice important skills.

Just use a soap box from the Dollar Tree or Wal-Mart, or even a pencil box, photo box, or pouch would work.

How you store them isn’t the most important thing. What IS important is that box centers offer your students multiple games to play with just ONE set of cards!

TEACHER TIP – be sure to decide ahead of printing time what games and cards you want to use. There are lots of options for the card sets for you – you do NOT HAVE to print them all to have centers for your students – choose what works for you! ❤️

They can be used for individual centers, small groups, or classroom centers. You can print in color OR if you are using for independent centers or to send home, all centers also come in black and white. Printing on colored cardstock saves ink but still makes them colorful!

However you use them, box centers will save you prep time and give your students CHOICE!

What educators are saying:

Such a great pack. Lots of hands on activities and easy differentiation.

This resource was easy to prep (print and a little cutting). I love that the cards can be used with a variety of record sheets. The skills covered in this pack match the skills that you’d be covering in kindergarten during the month too. Thanks!
