Earth Day Literacy Fun!
Are you looking for a fun and engaging Earth Day themed literacy center? This write the room activity may be for you. This download includes 12 picture and word cards to place around your classroom for students to find. This download also includes 3 differentiated recording sheets allowing for the option to differentiate for your student’s abilities. There is a trace the word recording sheets and a write the word recording sheet as well as a sentence writing page.
To assemble the picture cards, I recommend printing onto cardstock and laminating for durability. Once laminated, cut out each card so that you have 12 cards total to place or hang around your classroom. For the recording sheets, they need to be printed and copied according to need.
To use these materials as a write the room activity you will need to place each picture card throughout your classroom, you can hang them on the walls or set them on desks or tables, or in packet charts etc. Then, equipped with their recording sheets and a pencil, students move throughout the space looking for each picture and recording the words they find onto the appropriate space on their recording sheets. You can also use the material in this download as a literacy center. Simply provide students with the cut out cards and with their recording sheets and students must look for each card and record the words they find. When using it as literacy center, I store the materials in a folder or work tub. My class also enjoys using this activity as a “fast finisher” activity. I place all the materials into a folder and they complete the activity independently or in partner pairs.
