Thematic Centers & a GREAT Giveaway!

We believe that integrating thematic units into your day is most effective for kinder kids.  It makes learning and teaching a lot of fun for teachers and students! 
The next group of pictures are the thematic centers that we will be using in our classroom this school year.  We use this format for Fall, Winter, & Spring.  In our classrooms...we create centers for 2 weeks.  Yes...sometimes we have a hard time choosing which theme to use because there are so many fun & educational units on the web...but we try to choose what is most interesting to our students. In our classrooms, we also have a reading and math curriculum to follow during each school day.  We use the thematic centers to reinforce concepts we are already teaching in the classroom!  

THANKS for reading and GOOD LUCK!
