What is the INSTANT Writing Center?
The INSTANT Writing Center is a hands-on and engaging monthly writing center in one packet. Each monthly packet covers ten themes. The themes can be interchanged between any months. The themes are independent of one another and can be swapped to fit your needs.
Each theme has 6 word cards for a total of 60 word cards per monthly packet. The cards can be displayed for students to access. Along with the word cards, each theme comes with five activities. The five activities are repeated for every theme so that the task only has to be taught once. The monthly packets also include a center display sign, activity posters and organization labels.
