What are the most creative and/or just plain fun centers that your students love the most and look forward to participating in? They can be in any subject area.

My students love to use magnets to make words and put together the letters in their name.

OUR Blocks Center

I have tubes large small, PVC pipes. they connect them and make awesome creations!

and Pool noodles cut them in half and we make ramps out of them! use bouncy balls to go down the hole! they just love this. (they use the shelf to lean the noodles ramp so they can watch and see who's ball goes down the fastest!)

our classmates faces on jinga blocks...the kids like to play schoolhouse and use their classmates.

oatmeal boxes or Pringles cut out the bottom and they build with them or push cars through it. (tunnels)

Math Games

Throughout the year I teach the children some simple math games to practise skills. They just love playing!
A lot of my games are from the D5 sisters CAFE site for math and others are from Shari Sloane.
