Do you struggle with keeping your writing centers fresh and engaging? I don't know about you but
I would always wait and plan my writing station last because I just didn't enjoy it.
This year I wanted to approach my writing center differently. I wanted to make it
a go to station for my students that would both fun and engaging.
Writing has ALWAYS been my least favorite center to plan for and I absolutely dreaded it.
My students dreaded that center as well. I knew that I wanted to approach writing differently
this year so I sat down and thought hard about how I wanted my station to run.
This year I plan to have a writer's choice center.
Getting kinders excited about writing can be a task! I plan on introducing each writing activity to the
students slowly then give them the option to pick which activity they would like to complete
instead of just telling them. This will allow for differentiation as well as allow the students
to be more in control of what they do.
I wanted to create a comprehensive pack that not only made setting up the center a cinch but would
also cover writing skills throughout the whole year.
Some things that are included with the Write Away pack is:
Picture Dictionaries that color in both color and black and write. These are perfect because they
will not only assist students with spelling words but they will always help foster independent writing
because students will not have to stop writing, come find you, and ask you how to spell
a word. I printed out the black and white version for my table groups for students to use when
completing writing at their tables. The colored version is going into a binder that will be placed
in the writing center.
The dictionary also has a list of sight words, Dolch, organized alphabetically.
