Deanna Jump and Julie Lee just posted their Autumn Math and Literacy Centers unit to TPT, so be sure to check it out. This is my favorite centers unit so far!! It is full of new ideas as well as ways to differentiate the activities for your students.
My favorite activities are the Candy Corn Measuring and class book, the House Haunters combining sets, the Thanksgiving Friends data analysis, and The Frankenstein Name Comparison. I have always had my students measure how many pumpkins tall they are, but I love the idea of using candy corns to do it instead. The House Haunters game is perfect for working on number combinations and composing and decomposing numbers. I love the Thanksgiving Friends Data Analysis because it incorporates tally marks along with the other graphing pieces. The Frankenstein Name Comparison activity is my favorite!! Students compare all of the different aspects of their names to Frankenstein's name.
The unit contains 17 different literacy and math activities. All of the ideas can be easily taught in whole group and then moved into centers and some of the activities make great whole group lessons on their own. Go to TPT now to check it out!!
