We have just added TEN MORE First Grade Literacy Centers for the month of October! We can’t be more excited to share our October Centers with you! You will find a variety of phonics, language, vocabulary, and listening & speaking activities with these September centers. We provided a great review of essential kindergarten skills, and a solid start to first grade skills. These centers will be beneficial to any first grade classroom!
