Do you struggle to have a meaningful writing center? Your students lack motivation or they just don't know what to write about? I made this file for those exact reasons. If I am going to have a writing center, I want it to be meaningful for my students. I also want it to be practical for me, something I can keep up with.

This set of activities was specifically developed to accompany the book, "Snow is Falling" by: Dr. Franklyn M. Branley. I will be using this book as our read aloud for 2-3 days so students are familiar with the content of the book.

The writing center provides you with seven writing center options to get students thinking and writing!

They include:

-Writing about Text-to-Self Connections

-Writing about Text-to-Text Connections

-Retelling the Book (this one is all about things learned about snow)

-Picking a sentence from the book to write and illustrate to show understanding

-Unscrambling three sentences from the book. (no cutting on your part)

-Making a book that is similar to, "Snow is Falling"

-Reading and copying a Snowflake poem with a simple snowflake cutting craft

Take a peek at the preview to see everything in detail!

Thank YOU!
