Summer-y Centers!

I've been out of school for the last couple of weeks, just relaxing with my family, hosting some visitors, and working on house projects.  It feels good to have time to do all the things that have gone on the back burner this year!  I've even squeezed in a couple hikes with the kiddos!

The last couple of weeks of school, I made some fun summer themed reading centers for my students to do at our Word Work rotation during reading center time.  I'm the type of teacher who likes to keep routines and our schedule as close to normal as possible during the last week of school.  I know this makes more work for me as I have to stay late to do report cards and pack up my room, but I really feel that this is what's best for kids.  I get frustrated when teachers say they are only babysitting and watch tons of movies that last week.  What's the point of even going to school then?  *Off my soap box, thanks for listening to my rant! :)

Here are the centers I made:

I made 4 centers for 2nd grade.  Could be used as review in 3rd grade or as challenge in 1st grade, as well.

If you are still in school and looking for some extra activities, these would be great.  I go back to school on August 1st, so I will use them at the beginning of the year, too.  As always, homeschool, summer school, or year-round schools could use these as well.

Happy Summer!
