Don’t you love when centers seem to run themselves?

With my K and 1 EL Education Skills Block centers, they will! I have taken all the guesswork out of centers for you and made them low-prep, so that you can print and go!

With the most straightforward, engaging activities, my Read for Speed Centers and Simple Centers resources require little prep, materials, and clean up! Think page protectors, a pencil, scissors, and a glue stick–easy peasy! Each module includes games to build confidence and grade-level phonics skills.

Both resources are EL Education Skills Block aligned, yet general enough to be used with other curriculum or as a standalone product. Students will work on phonemic awareness, letter-sound recognition, fluency, and critical thinking skills via alphabetical order activities, word/picture card sorting, and spin and write games.

Your students will love coming back to these tried and true activities as they progress through new and more challenging phonics skills. These simple, yet powerful center packs will be game-changers for your skills block planning and your students’ learning. Win-win!
