Getting My Red and Green On and Two Free Centers for December

Snow before Thanksgiving!  I live in the south and I never ever remember snow before Thanksgiving.  There was just enough to cover the branches and make a few snowballs.  It was also enough to get me geared up for all the festivities coming during the next few weeks.
I have an endless to do list between now and Christmas.  But one thing I can check off is literacy and math centers for December.  On our last day before Thanksgiving break, I stayed late and put away all of the November centers and got out the December ones.  We only have two and a half weeks before winter break, so we need to hit the ground running on Monday.
For math centers we will be using my To Be Jolly {10 Math Centers for December} packet.  
Skills included in this packet are:  number order, place value, addition, subtraction, missing addends, time to the half hour, nonstandard measurement, fact families, and more.  Click on the picture above for more information.

Below is a free center from this packet, Silver Bells Measurement.  This nonstandard measurement activity features adorable Polar Express clip art.  Click on the picture for your own free copy.

During our literacy center time we will be working out of To Be Jolly {10 Literacy Centers for December}.  This packet includes work with parts of speech, sight words, vowel discrimination, contractions, antonyms, syllables, digraphs, blends, and more.  Click on the picture below for more info.

You can also have one center from this packet for free by clicking on the picture below.  In Naughty or Nice Noun students will sort words according to if they are people, places, or things.  

December is such an exciting (and distracting) time for kids.  Learning activities that incorporate holiday fun are a perfect way to keep progress moving forward with your dear students.
Speaking of holiday fun, don't forget Sunday is December 1st.  If your class has an elf, he or she will be reporting for duty.
