Monster Activities For Preschool - Monster Math and Literacy Centers

We’ve got the cutest little monsters to get your kiddos excited to learn with our Monster Activities for Preschool. Morning tubs are often used as students are coming in and settling in for the day. Kids are engaged while take home folders are being opened and checked, attendance is being taken, and those types of daily tasks. Math and Literacy Centers are great for a couple of reasons.

  1. Socialization: Math and Literacy Centers give kids a chance to work together in small groups. They get to share pieces, solve problems together, and even just talk, play, and learn for a few minutes with a couple of their tablemates.
  2. Creativity and Play: Creativity is something we can build and increase by spending time working on it. Math and Literacy Centers are a perfect way to introduce a little more play and freedom into learning rather than traditional worksheets or morning work that kept kids busy but did not encourage creativity and play.

  1. Hi!! I absolutely love everything you do!!! I’m a Pre K 4 teacher and will be doing a lesson on patterns in the upcoming weeks. I love the monster spots activity. I am looking for the monster manipulatives . I found the finger puppets through the link you set up but haven’t found the other. Can you tell me where I can purchase these?



    1. Hi!

      Thank you so much.
      For the monster spots, we are actually using buttons that we found at Michaels craft store.

    2. Hi Vicky! The monster manipulative you are referring to are monster buttons as Kara said. I got mine at Walmart in case you don’t find them at Michaels. I believe the brand name is Dress It Up buttons if this helps.
