Traditional Tales Centers to practice K-1 math and literacy skills. Easily differentiate student centers with over 240 activities for 12 of your favorite timeless tales.
Traditional Tales Centers
Little Red Hen, Stone Soup, City Mouse Country Mouse, Tortoise and the Hare… the list goes on and on. I love sharing traditional tales with students! Often times, kindies and firsties are quite familiar with these timeless favorites and they get pretty excited when you tie them into math and literacy centers.
Students will have fun practicing various skills while recognizing some familiar characters.
Each traditional tales set comes with kindergarten and first-grade centers. That way, you can easily differentiate within your classroom anytime throughout the year.
Letter tracing and writing practice is always a great beginning of the year center.
This sentence activity is one of my favorites and can be found in a few different sets throughout the bundle. Students create sentences using characters from the story. Response sheets are also included for students to write the sentence they build and illustrate it. This is such good practice for your sweeties who are learning to construct and write a complete sentence. I always liked modeling this center for students first. As a class, we would work together to build a sentence, paying attention to the capital letter at the beginning and punctuation at the end.
