Knowing and teaching you has been a pleasure, Memories of you I will always treasure. Cut sheets of printing paper into fourths. Let children cut out each sentence and glue to a separate piece of paper.
This allows my students to use their resources when writing. Changing things up I love to make my writing center come to life. Target is my best friend when it comes to doing things like this. During the month of December, I put a mail box at my writing center so my students could write notes to Santa.
Oh my goodness was this a hit! I also added ornaments with writing prompts written on them. In the gift baggies my students found our vocabulary cards for the month. These cards not only inspire my young writers, but it also helps them spell the word they want to write correctly.
Another thing that made my writing center really come to life were my write and wipe pages. These Write and Wipe pages are available in my store here: What do my students write in?

However, the one that really works for me is binders. I like using binders because it is a great way for me and my students to observe the growth they are making in writing.
I simply print them out every month and have my students put them in their writing binders. My students put them in so they know where they are! These students are busy working on writing at their desks in their binders.
During work on writing my students are free to write about whatever they want to. This boy was writing about the life cycle of an apple. Another reason why I love to use binders is because I dictate how BIG or small the lines are that students are writing on.
As you can see from above, this student still needs lots of practice with handwriting and keeping his letters in the correct part of the lines. While I do teach handwriting, I also use word work to practice that skill. That same child from above completed these hand writing cards a month later during word work.
His handwriting got better and better with practice! Just like the sisters, I introduce word work last. However, word work looks a little different in my class. Therefore, most of the time, word work in my class is done during our center times.
When I introduce my centers I use these posters. We discuss what our center time should LOOK like.In Kindergarten, my very first writing lesson will talk about how important the pictures are when you are writing.
I love the book Flotsam and have used it every year when I launch “read the pictures” to my classes. We will revisit this book during this lesson. Math is fun and a little spooky! Great Halloween math activities for kids. Find this Pin and more on Fall Ideas/Activities by Miss Kindergarten.
