If you're anything like me, you've got a stash of plastic containers from various products that were just too good to throw away. I happen to have a lot of them. In an effort to actually use them, I started to create fun rice shaker center activities. They're kind of like the popular I-Spy games where kids shake and roll the tube to find neat little treasures inside. However, in my versions, the kids are shaking and rolling to find synonyms, antonyms or compound words. This is always a favorite center and the kids run to the table when they see a new shaker has made an appearance!
