Updated Beach Pack - added a center!

REAL QUICK!!

I'm exhausted - just got home from working 7am-7pm - we had Multicultural Night - we were Japan - since our pen pals live there.

It was fun.

I have no pictures - but I will take some of our crafts to show you. They were cute!

I just wanted to let you know - if you bought and downloaded my beach pack...


I added another math center!!

So now there are TWELVE centers in the bundle - 6 of each.

It was a suggestion from a buyer. I liked it, so I added it - ha!

So, now it's 98 pages, and still the same price!!

*updated 5/17/12
We ALL know how much I love the beach, so for me, these centers could be used all year 'round! But they are also a great way to end the year right before summer.

The Literacy skills include:

-Picture Perfect Summer: Labeling a picture, illustrating it and writing a caption. My kids LOVE doing these in my room!
-Sail Away with Syllables: sorting syllables and breaking apart the syllables
-A Day at the Beach Writing: 3 word banks with pictures and writing templates
-Surfing with Sentences: sorting types of sentences with missing punctuation and students write out the sentences
-Summer Sentence Scramble: unscramble 6 different sentences to write out. The capitalization and punctuation are missing to make them think!
-Summer Sorting: Sorting nouns, verbs, and adjectives

The Math centers include:

-Getting Ready for Summer: going shopping to get ready for summer! there are two cards for each item, one is the least amount of coins, and the other is a different combination of coins. The recording sheets allow the teacher to choose one way for the students to match, or you can use both ways!
-Fractions of the Beach: identifying parts of a group
-Mermaid Math: For this center, the teacher has the option of deciding if the students do 2 or 3 digit numbers as well as addition or subtraction. You can also mix up the number of digits or addition and subtraction. Or you can have them do all the cards. This center is very easily adaptable so that you can differentiate for your students. 
-"Just Beachy" Numbers:For this center, the teacher has the option of deciding if the students do 2 or 3 digit numbers. There is a page for either option. You can use a deck of cards, or I have provided cute themed number cards you can copy off! I did 4 copies for one set and each set was a different color. Students do +/- 1, +/- 10, +/-100, 
-Time to Catch a Wave!:For this center, the teacher has the option of deciding if the students do hour and half hour, or to add in quarter hours. This center is very easily adaptable so that you can differentiate for your students. 
*NEW ONE ADDED*- Summer Matches: Matching single digit addition and/or subtraction to the sum or difference (9+7= or 15-8=). You can do both sets or just addition or subtraction!

I added that center because I could totally use that in the beginning of the year next year - this whole pack is differentiated enough for me to be able to use it in the beginning of the year and the end!

Ok - I must go put my feet up - and eat ice cream!!

I'll show you what we've been up to this week tomorrow - I promise.

I would love to see pictures of your Japan activities. We are doing an Olympic theme for the last day of school, and my class is doing a Japan theme. Please share when you get a chance! Thanks!
