Acorns Keep Falling on my Head!

Acorns keep falling on my head!  Really!  Our oak trees are dropping acorns like a rainstorm.  Ouch!  But, kind of like Newton and his apple, those pecks on the head inspired me to create some acorn centers.


One of the centers I made is Acorn Patterns.  There are 2 sizes of acorns and each size points in 4 different directions.  By providing that number of variables, it will be easy to differentiate instruction for my students. They can make a simple a-b-a-b pattern with sizes. Or, I can challenge my G/T students to create something far more complex.  

You can grab a copy of my Acorn Pattern math center at Google Docs.

In addition to the math center, I made 3 literacy centers: Collecting Acorns (compound word match), Acorn Contractions, and Acorns & Leaves (long vowel sort). If you like the patterning center, and I hope you do, you can get the whole set on TpT.


I'd love it if you would follow me on:
