Students lay alphabet flashcards around the carpeted area of the classroom. Then they take the beanbags, and, taking turns, toss the beanbags onto the flashcard that has the same letter.

LETTER BINGO

No explanation necessary, right?
Just one note: I have my students fill their entire card to win...they get some extra practice that way!

ORGANIZING STUDENT CENTERS

My students do one Literacy Center per day, and rotate through the activities until they have had a turn at each center. Here are a few of the options...there are tons more!
Center rotation board cards
I have students at each station, and they rotate through all the activities.
The group numbers and names do not change, I simply move the activity card over one space each day.

I find the visuals on the cards really help...most students go over to check out the chart each morning to see what they get to try that day!
