One of my favorite centers in my classroom is the magnet word work center
They are a cinch to set up and the kiddos really enjoy them
At the beginning of the year I like to keep my centers somewhat simple so that the kiddos can learn how to work in groups while doing some easy activities.
Even though most of my kinders come in not knowing their alphabet names they can match the shapes of the letters making this a super easy and fun center that all my littles can do.
Here is a look at some of the centers that I use at the beginning of the year
Some of my students work on lowercase letters, some of them work on uppercase letters and some of them work on both upper and lowercase.
I usually just give my kiddos a tub and let them explore.
They love the magnet station and so do I because it is super easy to set up.
For the littles that come in with some alpha knowledge I give them this sheet and let them fill in the missing letters.
If you would like to use these sheets for your littles you can download them FREE here!
This is another magnet center that I use. I have a lot of printable games in my classroom and I have pieces that always get misplaced so I use those and have the littles practice beginning sounds.
This year I have decided to incorporate my magnet station with my word family station.
