What teachers are saying…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This has been one of the BEST purchases for me on TPT!  I love the activities, the I Can statements, the standards each activity addresses and the recording sheets to show the students are working on mastery and what extra help they need!  I highly recommend purchasing this product because it will make your Stations more productive and aligned with the standards.” – Daniela S. 

 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I was new to kindergarten this year and her center work was great in helping my students get to work at their centers/workstations. The format was the same and for a lot of the activities which students were able to work independently while I worked with small groups.” – Pattie P.

 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Once you prep the pieces they are so easy to grab for a quick literacy or math center.  I love that a lot of the activities stay the same but change to match themes.  Once you have modeled an activity the students will know what to do because the process is the same.  This is such a great resource and is totally worth the money.” – Katie C.
