Back to School Craftivity Pack (4 Crafts) and Literacy Centers

Just finished my Back to School Craft and Literacy Center  packet.  I had a blast creating 4 transportation themed crafts - perfect for that first parent night bulletin board display. 

As with all of my crafts, these are easy assembly and ready to copy onto construction paper for use by the kiddos.  I like to keep it simple (but cute) for the little ones.

The themes  are:
"Rocketing into 1st Grade" (or Kindergarten or the School Year)
"Flying into 1st Grade" (or Kindergarten or the School Year)
"On the Road to 1st Grade (or Kindergarten or the School Year)
"All Aboard for 1st Grade" (or Kindergarten or the School Year).

Click here to go to my TpT store.

The packet literacy activities are all Common Core aligned.  They are perfect for review, or to assess the skills of your new students, or to introduce your kiddos to the coming year's Common Core goals. 


Literacy Center Activities Include:

* Page 3:      Story Beginning, Middle, and End (RL.K.2 and RL.1.2).
* Page 4:      Story Elements (RL.K.3 and RL.1.3).
* Pages 5 & 6: Compare and Contrast (RL.K.9 and RL.1.9).
* Pages 7-10:  Describe Graphic Organizer (support skill for W.K.8 and W.1.8).

* Pages 38-41: CVC Vowel Sounds (RF.K.2/RF.K.3 and RF.1.2/RF.1.3).
* Pages 42-43: Rhyming Words (RF.K.2).
* Pages 44-51: "Rocketing into ..." (directions, illustrations, patterns).

If you leave a comment your name will go "into a hat"  for a random drawing of a copy of the packet. I am giving away two packets. 

And the winners were:  Mrs.S. and Rachel M.  The back to school "Transportation Packet"  has been sent to your email address. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    1. The kids always love seeing their images incorporated into their art projects. I love doing this kind of craftivity at the beginning of the year so everyone learns classmates' names as soon as possible.
