Three quick and easy ideas for centers/small group activities!
1. ABC Order
All you need is an old magazine. Students can cut out letters, or you can precut yourself. I had my students work together to put the letters in alphabetical order. You could step it up later in the year and have them make words and put in alphabetical order. The kids LOVED it! (And I loved that it was super EASY!)
I used colored index cards for this activity, but you could use anything. I started with two separate cards like "did" and "not" and led the kids in cutting out the "o" and adding the apostrophe. They did a great job! I used this in a small group setting.
3. Fiction vs. Non-Fiction
I saw this great activity on Pinterest. I saved old Scholastic Book Orders and the kids cut out and sort fiction and non-fiction books. I used this as a center. The kids love looking through the catalogs, and I love the fact that it took almost no prep work! :)
I hope some one can use these easy ideas!
