We have created a collection of math and literacy superhero centers for your kindergarten and first grade classrooms.
Print and laminate these superhero centers for quick and easy math and literacy centers. You will find the link to download all of the free centers at the bottom of this post, look for the bold green words. Look for many more themes to follow!
Count the Stars – Two pages where students simply count the number of stars and write the correct numeral in the box with the stars.
Roll & Cover – This can be an independent activity or a partner game. Students roll a die and then use a chip to cover the correct number on the board. For partners, the first one to cover all the numbers is the winner.
Count & Write – These two pages use ten frames to helps students in their counting.
Fill in the Missing Number – Students use their counting skills to fill in the numbers between two others.
Number Matching – These matching cards contain numerals, number words and pictures. They can be used for a simple matching game center or even a one-on-one assessment.
Finish the Pattern – You can print this page in color for each student to complete independently with glue or laminate the pattern side and star pieces for a quick practice.
Trace the Letters – These two work mats have students tracing the upper and lower case letters of the alphabet.
Fill in the Letters – These two pages require students to fill in missing letters of the alphabet. Both lower and upper case practice mats have been included.
Write the Lower Case Letters – Students practice writing the lower case letters that match the upper case.
Write the Room Activity – Use the cards of the first page to write six words you want the students to practice. (We suggest you use a dry-erase or Vis-a-vis marker so that you can use the cards more than once if you like.) The second page is a recording sheet for students. They find the corresponding number in the room and move to that spot to copy and read whatever word is on the card. (You might think about clip boards for your students to use for this activity.) This is a great way to incorporate movement into your daily Word Work.
Letter/Sound Matching – There are three sets of cards in this collection – one with lower case letters, one with upper case letters and one with pictures of things that begin with those sounds. Again, you can use them at a center for matching game or have students work with you so that you can see their level of letter and sound mastery.
Fry Word Practice Cards – If your students are ready, you could use these cards for reading practice. Print two sets for a simple matching game, or use the superhero “Boom!” and “Smash!” cards for a partner game. Shuffle all the cards and place them in a basket. Students pick a word, and if they can read it aloud then they get to keep the card. If they get a “boom” or “smash” card then they have to put back one of their cards or give one to the other player.
Roll & Read – Use the Fry cards for this game. Place three cards on the board. Students roll a die and read the word under the corresponding number. Once they have read the word they can replace it with another Fry card.
Roll & Write – This is the done the same way as Roll & Read except students use the recording sheet to practice reading AND writing the word that goes with the number they roll.
