What makes THIS packet so unique?

After posting my original Thematic Writing Center (Kindergarten and First Grade) and my Thematic Writing Center (Second Grade) teachers begged for more because their kids begged to take a turn a the writing center! I wanted to create a writing center packet that could stand alone as a supplemental writing center or could easily be paired with my original writing center packet! If you own that original writing center and you would like to "see" how this packet can easily be paired with it... please view THIS VIDEO!

Please view the attached preview to SEE the packet up and close!

What activities are included in the writing center?

Just a reminder that these activities are replicated for all 90 THEMES!

The following activities are included for each of the 90 themes. Each of these systematic activities allow you the simplistic bliss of teaching the activity only one time for the entire school year.

::Resource Book::

The resource book is included for all 90 themes. The resource book includes a cover sheet, nonfiction fact sheet, differentiated nonfiction reader and reader word bank sheets. Place the resource book in a binder or spiral bind it.

::Story Prompt Rings::

The story prompt rings are a way to give students a “jump start” to their story. Choose between the two differentiated versions. Place the story prompt rings in the writing center along with writing paper.

::Story Starter Cube::

The story starter cube is a way for students to engage in the writing process in a fun and hands-on way. The students will roll the story starter cube and then write a matching story.

::Readers::

The readers are available in two differentiated levels. The students can read the kid-friendly nonfiction reader and apply the facts in their writing.

::Write the Room::

The write the room activities are a way for students to add movement to the writing center. You can choose between the two included differentiated versions. You can also print and place the cards on a ring as a stationary option.
