Looking for a fun literacy center that will get your kids up and moving while they are still learning? Write Around the Room is a center that I use in my Kindergarten classroom. Students walk around the room and find words and copy them onto their paper. In this version, students look for words that are talked about during the Kentucky Derby. They have to match the number on the Write Around the Room card with the number on their paper, so they are getting number practice as well! They will increase their Kentucky Derby vocabulary as well.
For extra practice with these words, students could use them to write a sentence or short story when they've finished with the Write Around the Room activity.
Both color and black and white versions are available, as well as 4 different versions of the recording sheet!
