If you’re like me, you’re constantly looking for ways to make your literacy block centers meaningful, yet not spend hours and hours on prep work. This packet requires one time set up at the beginning of the month, and then your done!
My goal is to have a consistent format for my writing center so I don’t have to do constant reteaching, but also to keep the activities fresh and engaging for my students. Thus was born this writing center packet!
This packet includes a word wall/vocab cards, task cards for lists, prompted writing, stories, and letters, as well as an additional activity of writing about pictures. I have included a variety of papers to accompany the task cards that accommodate for a variety of skill levels. All of the wording is appropriate for most beginning of the year first graders.
The center is designed to be changed out monthly to keep kids excited and give a variety of topics to write about for those kiddos that can’t quiet come up with ideas on their own yet. The papers act to differentiate for ability levels. Each month, just switch out the task cards and seasonal paper with the next packet, (check out my store to find the remaining months) then don’t worry about it again until the following month!
