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!
Our focus right now is the setting of a story, so I've put together a write the room that focuses on different settings.
For this activity, students will choose a picture from their recording sheet and then walk around the room looking for the words that match that picture. They will read the word and then write it on their recording sheet beside the box with the correct number, beside the picture they chose. They will continue until they have found all of the words that match one picture. They will then read their sentence. They will repeat this process for the remaining sentences. When they are finished, they will choose one setting and create a story for it. There is a spot for a picture too!
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 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.
I have also included an 'I can' chart to display in your write the room center to remind students what to do!
