This HUGE bundle contains all you need for a year of writing centers (30 themes total!)
The following themes are included:
St. Patrick’s Day
On the Farm
Back to School
Feelings and Emotions
They work well in a writing station or in literacy centers too. Each themed pack is 28 pages long and includes the following activities:
8 Word Cards (in color and black and white) – cut and laminate these cards. You may want 2 sets printed depending on how many students will be using them at once. They use them for most all of the activities.
Write It! Strips– cut and laminate these cards. Provide a dry erase marker for kids to write the words on (using the word cards for help)
** You can also print the black and white copies and print them back to back as additional recording sheets.
Write It! worksheet– Use as a recording sheet for the center, where the kids can copy the words onto the sheet. You can also use as a “write the room” option by hanging the word cards around and having the kids go and find/copy them down.
Trace and Paste– Work on writing and cutting too! Kids trace the words and then cut/paste their matching picture next to them (using the word cards to help them if needed).
Write It! Book – Print the book double sided, cut in half and staple to instantly have 2 copies! Leave at the center for kids to label the pictures (using the word cards provided). When they are finished labeling they color the pictures.
***For an extra challenge, try having them label the book without the word cards, using phonetic spelling.
Writing Prompts – Print and provide copies of the writing prompts for kids to write stories about. For example, on the page with a rainbow they may write “I saw a pretty rainbow today outside.” using phonetic spelling with the exception of the word “rainbow”, which is provided for them. ***There is also a writing book option with a cover. Print them back to back with the cover and they have a themed writing book!
