Water and land-form anchor chart for science. This chart helps students who are visual, understand what the land-forms look like. Science standards: 4. The Physical Setting, C. Processes that Shape the Earth. Grade 6: There are a variety of different land forms on the earth's surface (such as coastlines, rivers, mountains, deltas, and canyons).
Water and landform anchor chart for science and social studies. Love it!
Name puzzle. Here's how I will turn this into a Big Kids "tot tray" activity. I have a metal snack tray (like what you would use to serve breakfast in bed). Make cards with names of family members (or other people or even frequently misspelled words) and have those along with a box of magnetic letters so that child can find the correct letters to spell the name.
name puzzle, great idea!

Fish in the Sea Counting Game-Math Center idea. I would do numbers 10-21 and start with simple counting/recognition; eventually turn it to an adding and/or subtraction game with dice. Could also do single dice and grab bag element where kids draw sea animal cards that say things like "add one" or "double number", etc.
