December Lit Kit time is here! This all in one December literacy kit comes in three grade levels! The pictures in this post are a mixture of the three grade levels, (K, 1, and 2). Each December Lit kit has 10 literacy centers, 10 literacy notebook entries, Story element and grammar support posters, a variety of comprehension pages to be used with any story, and two whole group reading response activities.
The literacy log entries can be done during any month of the school year, but for the December set, we are exploring character traits, text connections, cause and effect, and so much more! Each grade level comes with 10 literacy notebook activities.
Each grade level also has 10 literacy centers which are perfect to introduce or reinforce learning! These centers can be used to fit your needs! Teach a new concept with these centers by playing teacher vs. students at the rug. Play them in a pocket chart or small group during guided reading, or allow them to be played by students independently during rotations!
