Silly Willy Centers!!

We are knee deep in Dr. Silly, silly centers, and spring activities!  Plus, our annual Jack Hartmann concert was yesterday.  Whew!  It's been that kind of week.  I've never blogged about our silly centers before now, so I wanted to show some of them because they are all kinds of fun!  Who doesn't love silly?!?!  (well, most of the time)  You can find all of the centers shown in my Silly Center Pack Here.  And, even though these were created for my classroom to use during Read Across America week, these would be great for anytime!  They're just fun with lots of learning!

So.....I love to hang "stuff" from my ceiling that goes along with our centers.
This week, we have these cute little balloons floating...
and, this is where they get their addition sentence.

Still working hard on subtraction...I totally forgot the Goldfish Crackers that we were supposed to use with this game...so we used the trusty ol' unifix cubes.
Math & Literacy integrated into one center!  Ding!
Were the number sequences in the correct order?  Well, they had to record in the yes/no boxes to let me know.  :)
They had a fit over this one...not sure why, but they loved matching the candles to the cupcakes.  Notice the candles are white...this was not a self-correcting game.  At this point in the year, they really have to know their "stuff" or figure it out by using resources in our room.  
This is about the time of year that I really have my students begin practicing reading sight word phrases...they did really well.  They had to read 12 phrases and color code their dots, but they chose only 6 to record.
Word families...
Beginning and Ending Sounds...
And, finally...our version of "The Hat on the Cat" and the -at family.
