### Centers Sunday #2! {Free K-2 centers}

Hey friends!! Hope you are all having a great Sunday. I know many of you are coming off of a three day weekend and I bet you LOVED it like I did!! :) Today is "Centers Sunday #2 and I'm so excited to share some freebies with you. These centers are Valentine's Day themed centers. I hope you enjoy them!

#1 Kindergarten "Spin, Read and Color": For this game, students play with a partner. Each player picks a color. They use a paperclip to spin and read the word they land on. The student finds that word and colors it in. Play continues until all hearts are colored. If they land on a word that has no more hearts available, then they lose their turn. The person with the most hearts colored in is the winner.

Students can also play independently just for practice. You can pick the file up here.

#2 First Grade: Sums of Ten Sort

For this center, students solve the equation on the lollipop and decide if it is a sum of ten or not. Students sort with the header cards included. *The header cards can also be glued onto envelopes and students can place the lollipops into the envelopes if you'd like that instead of just sorting on their desk.*

You can pick that file up here.

#3 Greater than and Less than 50: Students solve equations and decide if the sum is greater than or less than 50. Students sort the problems and then use their recording sheet to record the equations.

You can pick that file up here.

I hope y'all enjoy these free centers and that it helps you get off to a great start this week!! I'm working on a Valentine's math unit for K/1 (should be done sometime this week) and just finished my 2/3 Valentine's unit last week.

I'm off to go get my garage ready for a garage sale next weekend...ahh!! A little overwhelming but I'll be so glad to get rid of a ton of stuff we don't use anymore. :) Happy Sunday!!
