I can’t be more excited to share my March Centers with you! You will find a variety of phonics, language, vocabulary, and listening & speaking activities with these March centers.
I provided a great review of essential kindergarten skills, first grade skills, and a few little glimpses into second and third grade skills. These centers will be beneficial to any first grade classroom!

Students will describe characters trait examples from the examples provided, and explain how their actions fall under each trait.

RIGHT NOW, I AM SURE YOU ARE PROBABLY THINKING, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!!! HOW IN THE WORLD DO I GET MY HANDS ON THESE?
Each month includes 10 Common Core Aligned Literacy Centers that can be rearranged and reused throughout the year!
I have done the ground work for you! You don’t have to think about which standard it aligns to! It’s all laid out for you.
I have provided a scope and sequence so you can see exactly how the activities line up with the standards.
That way, you don’t have to worry about what’s coming for those of you who plan far in advance.
