Whenever we do write the room, my students are so engaged! They love scrambled sentences as well so putting the two together equals super student engagement!
This set includes real life pictures instead of clip art.
For this activity, students will walk around the room and find a set of word cards. They will read the first word and then write it on the first line. They will continue until they have found all of the words for the same picture. They will then read their sentence. They will repeat this process for the remaining sentences. When they are finished, they can create a writing piece about the pond habitat, using the paper provided. I have also included a couple of other writing papers with the following headers: All About Ponds, All About Ducks, All About Frogs, All About _____________
This center is simple prep: print, cut, and display the word cards around the room. I plan to print the recording sheet front to back to save on paper.
I have also included an 'I can' chart to display in your write the room center to remind students what to do. Vocabulary cards are also included to help students with content knowledge and spelling in their writing.
I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine do! :) It is fun and engaging while practicing the following common core standards:
RF.1.1a- Recognize the distinguishing features of a sentence (e.g., first word, capitalization, ending punctuation).
RF.1.3g Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.
**This pack will be part of my 'Habitat Write the Room Bundle' pack when it is complete.
