Movement and Learning

I worry about sit and get… you know… where you students spend their days sitting and working on worksheets. The kindergarten classroom has changed over the last 20 years.  As teachers, we have had to come up with ways for students to couple fun with learning! I think it can be done!

Research has proven that movement and novelty are paramount with student  learning.  So why not include movement in their center time!

Write the Room

This type of activity has been around for a long time.  Students simply go on a “hunt” for cards that are placed around the room.  Yesterday, I was with some kinder friends who were at this center.  This is what one friend said,  “I like it because it is like going on an animal adventure where you go to find animals, expect you are looking for school things instead!”  Ha!  I totally get it!  One of the Perfect Son’s favorite activities to do when he was little to look for pennies that were hidden around the room.  This is the same concept.  Students LOVE it!

Keep it going all year!

By adding new themes, students are able to maintain their excitement as they go on the hunt!  They squeal with excitement as they see the new cards have been added.

Elizabeth Coller and I have teamed up to bring you monthly Write the Room activities.  She is precious, kind, and pretty darn smart!   You can swing by her blog HERE.  Elizabeth and I created a Bible version of my writing stations.  You can see that set HERE.

We have included black line versions of these activities in the same unit, so if you are limited on color copies… no problem!

Editable Sight Words

Everyone has a different sight word list… right?   So you can add your own words to make this center fit YOUR needs.

    Hi DeeDee! I always love your blogs, articles and resources however I was a little surprised when the link you provided led me to Elizabeth Coller’s bible themed writing stations.

      Hi Kathy! Yes! Elizabeth and I worked on the Bible Writing Station together. If you click on the link, they actually take you to my store. I love how they turned out and they are great for teacher who work in a private school.

        What is the link to the Bible writing Stations? I work in a private school and am always looking for ideas to integrate Bible!

        Thanks!

          Here is a link the the Bible Writing Stations. I also added it to the blog post: Bible Writing Work Stations

          She also created some Bible Lessons with Deanna Jump and they are amazing! You can see those HERE.

    Deedee, Will you please write about how you go about modeling and teaching Write the Room and how you reinforce expectations? I have a very active group this year who I think will benefit from Write the Room–I even have your word family Write the room materials ready to go–but keep changing my mind about trying it because I am not confident in implementing it successfully. Thanks for all you do!

      I would love info on implementation too! I just purchased the growing bundle and I am trying to sort out how to teach each center and should I only use one at a time or more than one? Lots of questions!! Thanks DeeDee!

        Hi there!

        For write the room, I would just do one ELA and Math activity per week. So just select the one that makes the most sense to your classroom needs at the time. Or you could differentiate them by adding a color to the cards. (example: a red dot for some students and a blue dot for others). In my classroom and in the classrooms I work with, the students don’t really need to be taught what to do because the center activity is on the “I can” card. These are very similar to other activities they are familiar with. So after the first month of learning my stations, the students are self sufficient. So if you have my Math and Literacy Monthly Stations or my Black Ink Only stations, the students will already be familiar with the tasks. I hope that helps.
