Our free back to school word work set can be an easy to assemble word work and literacy center to help you get your school year started.

This is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.

Grab this free back to school word work collection to make your first word work center of the year easy to create.

Use these word cards and activities during the back to school months.  These were created to be an easy to put together word work center.

Heading back to school means days of preparing for beginning of year assessments and getting your classroom ready. At the same time, you need to get ready for teaching your kids about literacy and working with their classmates.

The first days are full of so much – our hope is that this word work will save you a little time as you prepare!

We have provided an assortment of word cards with pictures.

These word cards can be printed in color and laminated.
