Spruce up your math and literacy centers this Easter with these quick and simple ideas featured by Reagan over at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits! Seriously, how cute are those ladybug and chick buckets?!?
Easter-Themed Center Setup Idea
You just never know what a quick trip to Wal-Mart will inspire. In this case, a total Easter make-over for classroom centers! What student wouldn't be excited to come in to a surprise classroom center make-over?? For example, check out these super cute Easter bunny ten frames. Perfect for number practice in your math center. The counters are even bunnies!
Next find - Easter buckets and Easter egg-shaped baskets (perfect for organizing and holding all those little classroom center pieces and necessities).
And to top it off - foam Easter shapes. I see game pieces and manipulatives in your future!
In the following example, the Easter bucket is used for holding the larger items, like the Math center gameboards, and the basket is used for holding the smaller game pieces. Of course, you could use them however you'd like to accommodate your specific centers. Super cute!
The featured Easter items were Wal-Mart finds from several years ago, but they are relatively generic in nature. You should be able to find very similar items this Easter at your local big box or dollar stores. Here's your chance to be creative with your shopping finds!
