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 may be my favorite 'Write the Room' Activity yet... I plan to use this for the 100th day of school. It will give students lots of ideas and visuals before writing their own 'When I'm 100 years old...' story. I have included lined writing paper for students to write about what they will do when they are 100.
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 first word and then write it on the line beside the corresponding picture. They will continue until they have found all of the words that match that picture. They will then read their sentence. They will repeat this process for the remaining sentences.
I have also included an 'I can' chart to display in your write the room center to remind students what to do and word cards to aid their writing.
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.
