St. Patrick's Day Centers Giveaway & Sale

Hello all you Lucky Leprechauns! Are you getting ready for St. Patrick's Day? It is just around the corner and will be here before you know it!

We are slowly creeping up to MAP testing time ( will be hearing about the MAP test a lot since we are nearing the start dates) and I have started reviewing a lot of Communication Arts concepts to help prepare my students to do their best on the test. What better way to review than to complete some literacy centers! I plan on including these centers during my RTI time where students complete centers during this time. You could also use these centers around the room and have your students move after a timer goes off.

My Lucky's Literacy Centers are packed with a lot of literacy review, such as proper nouns, friendly letter, verbs, context clues, etc.

Lucky's Names
Within this center, your students will separate the names that are written correctly (put under the Pot of Gold) and incorrectly (put under the Fools Gold). Then they will record only the words that are written correctly.

Lucky's Nouns
Students determine if the nouns are singular and plural by sorting through the clover leaves. They record their findings on the recording sheet provided.

Lucky's Synonyms
Students sort through the clover leaves and match up the synonyms within the pile. Then they have to determine an antonym for the synonyms. They record their findings on the recording sheet included.

Lucky's Verbs
Students sort through and determine which verbs are past, present, and future. This skill really helps students to pay attention to the verb endings. They record the sorted verbs on the recording sheet provided.

Lucky's Clues
Using context clues, students will determine the meaning of the underlined words within the sentences. On the recording sheet provided, they will write the meaning of the words and the words that were helpful to them.

Lucky's Letter
This is a skill that I still see students struggle with, even though they have been completing friendly letters since Kindergarten. Students determine where each part of the friendly letter goes on their recording sheet. They have to rewrite the letter correctly, which helps with editing skills as well, writing complete sentences, and using the parts of a friendly letter correctly.
