Are you looking to engage your students during their writing station this January? Do you have limited space for your writing station? My writing station keeps students motivated to write and is made to be completely mobile! You could store your entire writing station (words, writing assignments, and tools) inside one crate.
The entire station is available with and without handwriting lines (perfect for K-1 students!). Both versions are included in this download.
You have the option to print the thematic words
in one of two formats. You can choose the word cards
, which fit into a small photo album (4x6). Or you can print the word strips
, which fit nicely on a ring. Either way, the words are mobile and easily accessed by your students. The 50 thematic words
included in the January writing center focus on snow, winter activities, winter clothes, New Years Eve, Chinese New Year, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
The rest of your station can be placed in a binder or folders.
Each month includes the same 12 planning pages
for students. These pre-writing tools focus on narrative, informative, and opinion writing. The opinion planning pages come with (optional) picture choices. You can also designate what the students are giving their opinion on.
In your download, you will also receive various writing paper options. There are traditional pages included with space for a picture and lines, as well as just lines. There are also themed writing papers.
You will also receive 5 picture prompts and 4 labeling pages each month. These will match the thematic words for the month.
As a bonus, you will get 2 how-to interactive writing pages. These will help students work on sequencing and informative writing. This section also includes a page with words students may need to use when completing their how-to pieces and sequential posters (or cut apart for sequencing cards). You can also purchase the sequencing pages separately.
