Winter Centers

Hiya Peeps
Shuna here
I has been awhile since I have blogged…..
It’s kinda a thing you know
When you have a blog you are suppose to….blog! 
I will try to get better
I hope that everyone have a fantastic holiday season.
I got to go back home to MS and I had a blast. 
We had a giant onesie party on Christmas day.
Here is me in my sassy onesie!

Moving on
I spent part of my winter break getting my centers printed and laminated so they are ready to go. 
Here is a quick peak at some of my winter centers. 
Huge stack all laminated and ready to be cut.

*Snowman’s New Shoes
For this center the students are going to pick a snowman and read the color and number word. The littles then match the correct shoes to the snowman and add the correct amount of buttons. Some of my littles will be working on numbers 1-10 while others will work on 11-20.
*Chilly Ten Frames
This is a fast paced matching game. Students flip over the cards and match the number to the correct ten frame. Students then color the correct amount on the tens frame. 
* Icy Vowels
This is a partner game. Students pull a silent e card and read it. Students then find the picture that matches their word. If the word is read correctly students cover the picture with their pom pom balls. 
* I Love Winter Pocket Chart
Students use the I Love Winter story card and students build the story. 
Students then record their answers

*Tallying in Wonderland! 
Students pull a card and count and tally each picture
*Baking “L” Blends
Place a cookie sheet and spatula in this fun station. 
Students flip over blend cookies and match them to the correct stove. 
*Snowman Sentences
Students practice their sentence skills by unscrambling the word cards to make a sentence. Students then record their answers. 

*Penguin Claps
My students love this station! I stock the station with bingo dot markers and gloves. Students put on their gloves and pick a card. Students then clap out their syllables and record their answers. 

*Shiver Me Timbers
Students pick a card and add the problem on the bear. Students then find the correct coat and match it to the bear.

*Icy Subtraction
Students pick a card and read the subtraction problem. The littles will then scoop that amount of ice cubes into their ice tray. To demonstrate taking away students will scoop out the correct amount and record their answers.

*Winter Words
A write the room station

All of these centers and more are part of my It’s Winter Y’all pack

  1. Wow! This pack looks seriously amazing! My family had a wonderful Christmas! One of my favorite things we did was make cookies together. Of course we ate them together too! Yum! 🙂

  2. We took family photos with our iphones/smart phones. We debated (jokingly) which took the best pictures. Of course there were different versions of iphones, androids(?), and whatnots. One cousin has the same phone from 7 years ago. He swears by it. Then there was two year old Jacob. He wan NOT interested in taking pictures. "Terrible Twos" in total effect. Most pictures show him with a "stink face" or running out of the picture. And his favorite word is "NO"! The iphone 5s and the 7 year old phone won, by the way. And Jacob was much better on New Years, whew. vhair61215@gmail.com

  3. We went to Branson just before Christmas. We went to Dixie Stampede and ate there, Silver Dollar City and ate there and then had lunch with Santa. We enjoyed the food and the company! Happy New Year! By the way, I'm waiting on the Bright Start pack for January! Can't wait!

  4. We have a large family and we have a gift limit of 5-10 dollars. My family is also very creative and we try to out-do each other. This year my daughters and I made potty kits(we are also a little OCD about public toilets!). Each kit(cosmetic bags purchased at Goodwill) contained 10 baggies. Each baggie conatined a toilet seat cover and anti-bac hand wipe. The kit also had a 10 count pack of lysol wipes and a mask for those really bad bathrooms and when you just have to go …NOW!

  6. This year was the first Christmas in which my little man really got the whole "Santa" thing so it was fun seeing him get everything ready for Santa on Christmas Eve. He had to pick out just the right cookies for Santa and some carrots for his reindeers. It was adorable!

  7. Your centers look great!!!! Love them!!! We went back home to Georgia for Christmas and enjoyed the warm weather with family and friends and watched my sister in law get married. Now it's back home to the snow to get ready for school again.

  8. Hi Shuna! The fam and I visited a gigantic drive-thru Christmas lights display and it was awesome! I would love to win these centers to use in my classroom…thanks!

  9. I love all you winter centers, Shuna! Your students are so lucky to be in your class. Happy New Year!

    (We spent our Christmas break making Rainbow Loom bracelets, necklaces and charms. My kids are obsessed!)

  10. We brought out the old game boards and played games. It was fun, especially since that's something that isn't done often anymore! Love your pack:) I hope to win.

  12. Welcome back Shuna! One thing we did as a family was drive around our own neighborhood looking for the winners of the light contests. It was actually cold in San Antonio that day and it was great to see how creative everyone is about Christmas lighting. Gave me ideas for next year! 😉

  13. We had a movie night where we made our own pizza and watched Despicable Me 2. Before Christmas, we went to a place in NC called Tanglewood Park which has Amazing Christmas lights that you drive through. It is beautiful and has music playing as well.

  14. Your Christmas sounds like so much fun! My family had fun cooking and baking together on Christmas. I think we should try a "onesie" party next year! I would love to win your pack of centers.

  15. We went to Universal Studios. This is kind of a Christmas break tradition. We had so much fun enjoying the rides, the Christmas decoration, and the Macy's parade.

  16. This pack looks great! For Christmas, the fun thing our family did was just together, enjoy dinner, Skype with the grandkids in the northeast, and simply enjoy each other's company without distractions. My mom and m-I-l are both in their mid80's so times like these may be limited in number…

  17. Wow this is some set of activities. I am wondering how the centers work when the children get the information incorrect. Do they continue to play the activity wrong, how do you manage so they get the most out of each center activity?

  18. Shuna, just LOOOO-ve your stuff…. keep creating! my kids and I love all your center ideas…. just wonderful!!!! Thanks also, for all the freebies you share with us!!!! Peace and Love!
