Writing Centers All Year

Hiya Peeps, 
Do you struggle with keeping your writing centers fresh and engaging? I don’t know about you but 
I would always wait and plan my writing station last because I just didn’t enjoy it. 
 This year I wanted to approach my writing center differently. I wanted to make it
a go to station for my students that would both fun and engaging. 
Writing has ALWAYS been my least favorite center to plan for and I absolutely dreaded it. 
My students dreaded that center as well. I knew that I wanted to approach writing differently 
this year so I sat down and thought hard about how I wanted my station to run. 
This year I plan to have a writer’s choice center. 
Getting kinders excited about writing can be a task! I plan on introducing each writing activity to the 
students slowly then give them the option to pick which activity they would like to complete
instead of just telling them. This will allow for differentiation as well as allow the students
to be more in control of what they do. 
I wanted to create a comprehensive pack that not only made setting up the center a cinch but would 
also cover writing skills throughout the whole year. 
Some things that are included with the Write Away pack is: 
Picture Dictionaries that color in both color and black and write. These are perfect because they 
 will not only assist students with spelling words but they will always help foster independent writing 
because students will not have to stop writing, come find you, and ask you how to spell
a word. I printed out the black and white version for my table groups for students to use when 
completing writing at their tables. The colored version is going into a binder that will be placed 
in the writing center. 
The dictionary also has a list of sight words, Dolch, organized alphabetically.

Word Family Flip Books

Hiya peeps, 
Around still around? It has been a long time, almost a year, since I last posted. 
Life happened, and happened, and happened. 
But anywhoo
I wanted to stop by and share a new freebie. 
I have been using word family poems/short stories in my own classroom and a lot of you all have 
asked me where I got them from and if I would share them. 
Here is an example of the poster. 
I used these during whole group to introduce and review each word family. 
I wanted some additional activities that they students could use in small group, guided reading, or as
 homework practice so I created some flap books that go along with the poems. 
Each day the student will complete a different activity based on the poem. 
On Friday they practice writing a sentence using 2 word family words
{Apparently I forgot to snap a pic of that page}
Click the pic below to pick these flip books up as a freebie! 
*One last thing
I am having a huge sale in my store. Now is the perfect time to pick up those goodies that have been
 sitting on your wishlist!

Peace Out Peeps
