PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Kindergartners and First Graders love to write! Friends' names, word wall words, color words, number words, shopping lists, sentences. You name it, they'll write it! This packet contains 19 different writing activities for your students to practice during station time, for group activities, or independent learning. They also fit well with the Daily 5. I like to use them also for my "fast finishers." Those children who always finish their activities way before anyone else! We all have them! Now we can give them something fun to do. They'll be no complaining as they walk around the room, copying words, writing sentences, and drawing pictures. A must have for any classroom.

Activities include:

-writing color words, number words, friends' names, and words that begin with certain letters of the alphabet

-word wall practice

-word searches

-writing rhyming words

-write the room

-surveys

-writing / illustrating lists

-labeling (make your own)

-using describing words

-tree maps (make your own)

-nouns

The wonderful world of 1st grade!!
I just found out two days ago that I have been reassigned to first grade. I have only taught upper grades (4 and 5) for 25 years!!! Needless to say, I am scared to death. I don't have a clue how to teach a child HOW to read among other things. I have no resources.........................ofcourse, I've spent thousands on upper elementary resources over the years.
As soon as I found out, you popped in my mind because I have read and seen so much about you on TPT. You seem to be the "cream of the crop" for primary grades!! I wish I could pick your brain!!!

Anyway..............I am in need of some structure for both Reading and Math Workshop. Do you have any idea where I could buy entire year plans for Grade 1? They would be a gold mine.......more like a security blanket for me. I would not follow them word for word........in Virginia we have SOL's, not Common Core standards. I just don't want to spend WEEKS writing plans from scratch when I need to be doing more creative things, like making centers. I bought The Daily 5 hoping I can get a feel for what's ahead.

I wasn't this scared the first day I ever taught and I even had a Vietnamese child who could not speak English!!! Any ideas would be a treasure for me.

On  August 16, 2013Lori Rosenberg - Teaching With Love and Laughter answered:
Robin,

Wow! What a change going down to first from the upper grades. I wish I knew where to send you for reading and math workshop ideas. I don't teach math and I have a reading program in my school, so I don't need to go find materials. I will certainly let you know if I find anything that I think would be useful for you. Have you tried to do a search in TpT?

Hope you do not mind me asking.

Thanks for your product! I have a question about how to use the pages with words are, can and how and the flower at the top. What do you do with those pages? I am confused..
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 30, 2012Lori Rosenberg - Teaching With Love and Laughter answered:
Those are tree maps. If you do them often enough together, the children can do them on their own. For example, they can write in 'School'. Then, they would list things that school is, can, and has. I use it a lot to reinforce nouns. They write in a person, place, thing, animal, or idea, and then fill in the bottom portion. I hope this helps!
