Product Description

Description

Are you looking for a writing center to support the Science of Reading instruction in your classroom? The Science of Writing goes hand in hand! What if having engaging writing center activities for kindergarten was easy? This set of writing center activities are aligned with structured literacy phonics lessons!

 

This writing center has been designed and planned for you and is a great way to set up your sustainable kindergarten writing center!  

 

Everything is here to make your writing station successful in your own classroom. Center time is about to have a favorite activity… the classroom writing center.

 

The response pages included in each set will remain consistent with lots of differentiation options. You may decide at the beginning of the year to have your kindergarten students work on the initial sounds. Then as the school year progresses and students become more independent, you will have them work on other phonics sounds.

 

These activities were designed for students to complete independently. I

 

Here’s a look at some of the different writing activities included for each phonics skill:

  • Cut It! Students will cut and build the decodable words
  • Find It! Students will complete the word search and write the words
  • Ladder It! Students will complete the word ladder. Students will also write about one of the words.
  • Map It! Students will map the decodable word and write about one of the words.
  • Label It! Students will label the pictures
  • Write It! Students will write using one of the decodable words.
  • Vocabulary Cards in both in color and in black and white.
  • I Can Cards for student independence.

 

Your young writers will need a variety of different writing tools. Make it simple but fun:

  • pencils
  • crayons
  • colored pencils (I like the erasable kind)
  • markers (optional)

 

Classroom set up:

  • Place the writing center activity cards on a bulletin board or tri-fold board (if you need it to be portable). Other teachers place the vocabulary cards in a pocket chart.
  • Baskets or bins to place the different writing options in.
  • You may wish to add your own sentence frame or sentence stems to the writing literacy centers work area at the beginning of the year. A simple sentence can be really supportive in a kindergarten classroom.

How to differentiate the writing center:

Remember the purpose of a writing center, is to hook your students. Staring at a blank paper can intimidate your new young or lowest writers. The writing paper templates that I have included are highly engaging so students can participate at this center at their own level.

How to keep students engaged at the writing center for the whole year:

We know that writing skills take time to develop. Some kindergarten writers can write a complete sentence while others are still are writing random letters.

Here are the phonics skill that will be included in this Science of Reading Writing Center:

  • CVC Words with missing initial sounds, missing ending sounds, missing medial vowel sounds, and one where students will need to complete the whole CVC word. This allows you to offer differentiation options. (included)
  • Digraphs and Blends: with missing initial sounds, ending consonant blends and digraphs, missing vowel sounds, and one where students will need to complete the whole word. This allows you to offer differentiation options. (included)
  • CVCe Words: with missing initial sounds, ending consonant sounds, missing vowel sounds, and one where students will need to complete the whole CVCe word. This allows you to offer differentiation options. (included)
