The start of the school year is hard to describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it before. The only people who truly understand what we go through during August and September are other teachers. In Texas, we start school in early August, so by September, we’re already cruising along. I like to use our Kindergarten Math and Literacy Centers to support my teaching throughout the month. I find it helpful to have curated centers that coincide with the season!
Since we spend so much of August practicing routines and learning procedures, we’re ready to kick things up a notch by September. One of my favorite things about September is that I get to teach while using adorable fall themes. In science, we explore apples with this science unit and become little scientists with these September science experiments.
I put apple activities like this editable sight word game and this number match in my centers or morning work bins. Students enjoy building their names in an apple bucket and playing this fun apple pick and color activity. And we work on fine motor and scissor-cutting skills with this apple craft.
Now that the kids are back into a routine at school, we really want to encourage learning as much as possible. So I’m always looking for creative ideas for math and literacy centers that will find my students having fun while learning. This is why we created our September Kindergarten Math and Literacy Centers. These centers are a must-have for any kindergarten classroom this fall. You’ll love how easy the centers are to use, and your students will love how much fun they have while using them!
September Kindergarten Math and Literacy Centers
The September learning centers for kindergarten include 20 math and 20 literacy centers to use with your students. There are five categories of literacy centers and five categories of math centers. In each category, there are four centers to choose from. The centers are easy to explain to your students, giving you the chance to work with small groups or with students one-on-one while the rest of the class works on the centers.
Now I may be a bit biased, but I’d say that these are the best math and literacy centers for kindergarten in September! Where else would you get 40 centers, all decorated with adorable clipart and themes perfect for fall, that are also engaging and exciting for your students?

Using the September Learning Centers for Kindergarten
Once you purchase and download your centers, it’s time to get started! You’ll be able to look through all five categories for each subject of centers. From there, you can make a list of which centers you need to print, copy, laminate, cut, etc. If you don’t think you’ll use all of the centers, you can always print a copy and put them in your sub folder!
One thing that makes these centers great is that there is no one “right” way to use them! Maybe you do math centers and literacy centers at different times of the day, and you can use all of the centers during those times. Maybe you have one center time that includes both subjects, so you might pick and choose which centers to use. Or maybe you’ll put some of the activities in centers and use some of them, like the poetry and write the room activities, as whole class instruction and activities. Make these kindergarten resources work for you and your classroom!
Whichever way you choose to use them, make sure to explicitly teach and model the activities for your students so that they can learn to be independent with them. Set yourself up for success by laminating the reusable pieces, so that you will have them ready for the following September as well!
Materials Needed for the September Kindergarten Math and Literacy Centers
Kindergarten Math Activities for September
Write the Room
Write the room activities can be used as a center or as a whole class activity! These activities are my students’ favorites because they love getting to use clipboards and roaming around the room. The four math write the room centers for September will help your students practice comparing numbers, putting numbers in order, completing patterns, and sorting and graphing.
Write & Wipe Activities
The four September write and wipe math centers cover skills including 2D shapes, counting, writing numbers, measuring, and working with positional words. Our write and wipe activities are perfect for laminating or putting in a page protector and using a dry-erase marker, but they also come in black and white if you’d rather use them as a consumable.
Our partner games come with a board game, a card game, a spinner game, and a race to the top game. The four September math games will help your students practice adding, working with patterns, subitizing, and number order, all while having fun playing games with their classmates.
Math Match-Ups and Puzzles
Match-up activities and puzzles are great for repetitive practice for our little learners. You’ll get two math puzzles and two math match-up activities in the September centers. The two match-ups will help students review shapes and subitizing. The two puzzles review numbers to 10 and counting on. Your students will have a blast this fall with these math activities!
How fun does it sound to “build a scarecrow?” Your kindergarten students will have a great time using these September math games, and you’ll love how easy they are to prep. All you need are some dice! The dice games include a build a scarecrow activity, a color by code activity sheet, a roll and cover/color game, and a roll and graph activity. These games will help your students review color words, subitizing, and numbers 0-10.
September Literacy Centers
Literacy Pocket Chart and Match-Up Activities
Looking for interactive September literacy centers for kids? Well, these centers have got you covered! In the September center bundle, you’ll get two literacy match-up activities that practice sight words and beginning sounds. You’ll also receive two pocket chart activities. The pocket chart activities include a sequencing activity where students can practice retelling the steps of raking leaves and a sentence scramble activity where students can unscramble September-themed sentences. Both pocket chart activities include a writing component as well.
The September math and literacy centers for kindergarten come with four weeks’ worth of poetry centers. You’ll get posters for four different poems, three original poems written by us and one familiar nursery rhyme. Each poem comes with a poetry journal and notebook for your students to work with, plus pocket chart pieces. Don’t have a poetry center already? No problem! Use each poem together with your whole class, and pick and choose which activities to have your students do after reading.
Write & Wipe Activities and Puzzles
The two September write and wipe activities for literacy are covered in adorable fall clipart and review literacy skills, including counting words in sentences and identifying beginning sounds. The two literacy puzzles will help your students practice rhyming and matching uppercase and lowercase letters.
Write the Room Centers
One can never have too many engaging activities that get your kids up and out of their seats while learning, right? That’s why the September center bundle not only comes with four math write the room activities, but also four literacy write the room activities. Your kindergarten students will enjoy moving around and reviewing skills like beginning sounds, alliteration, uppercase and lowercase letters, syllables, and color words.
The September literacy centers come with four sets of word cards to use with your students this fall. Each set of words is themed for a different topic. The four topics for September are apple words, community helper words, fall words, and feeling words. You’ll also receive different writing paper options to help you differentiate your writing center with whatever materials work best for your students.
