The students look through and find the ones that they know how to do or the ones that they want to try. Almost all of the activities were made using the File Folder teacher resource books. A few were made using graphics software, and some were made using Ellison die-cuts.
We have a central mailbox in which each student has their own mail slot. The desk is stocked with scrap paper, stamps, and cards. The mailbox is made from a wine box that I covered with contac paper and set on its side.
The dividers that are built into the box to keep the bottles from breaking make perfect mail slots for us. Right now we have the 3 Billy Goats Gruff up there. I photocopy blackline pictures onto cardstock and have the aide color them with markers. To make them stick to the flannelboard, I hotglue pieces of sandpaper to the back of them.
The manipulatives can be used on the flannelboard.
The resistance of the chalk on the board is good for those students who have poor fine motor skills. The magnetic chalkboard has a large piece of wood that you put across it to hold the Big Books. The wood has two small pegs to hold the book.

The following picture shows one of the activities that I made a couple of summers ago to use in the Centers. I bought a small sun shaped notepad and using the Print Artist graphics program, I made the graphics to go along with each letter of the alphabet.
On one page of the pad I wrote the letter, on another page I glued the picture. Everything was then laminated. The students match the letter to the picture that begins with that sound. I had the TA cut oval shapes from colored construction paper using the Ellison machine.
To make the ovals the right size, we used the center only of the capital "O". There are 8 ovals each of about 5 different colors. Once they were laminated, we added a small piece of magnetic tape to the back of each oval and placed them in a labeled ziploc bag.
Then alphabetizes the words in each color group. Will add picture later So many Center ideas are listed there. Cut out all the color words letters from the appropriate color construction paper using the Ellison machine.Title: Cursive Alphabet Practice Author: T.
