My students absolutely LOVE the Write the Room literacy center!
They have such a great time getting up and moving around the classroom, searching for words everywhere and recording their answers!
It's such an easy to set up center and just about runs itself.
Hide the words around your classroom. Your students choose from a variety of differentiated worksheets, attach one to a clipboard (with the pencil already attached to it by yarn so it doesn't get lost!) and there you have it!
I keep everything in my room easily accessible to the students so when one of them wants to try this center out, they can get all of the materials independently.
This is how I store the differentiated worksheets. I usually have 2-3 out at a time and rotate the rest over the couple of weeks that one set of themed-words is out.
I like to hide these words all around my class so that students really get into finding them!
Here is an example of one worksheet that a student completed last week.
Would you like to try a Write the Room Literacy Center activity for FREE!?!?
Well, as many of you know, I live in Canada, and many of my students have been asking lots of questions these past few weeks and want to learn more about our country.
So I created this pack.
My very good friend, Lori, from Teaching with Love and Laughter, taught her students all about Canada last week for Field Day using this activity!
You can try out this literacy center by clicking on the picture below and downloading the activity.
I have also included a mini book with the download which has a lot of background information about Canada, including definitions for the words included in this pack.
If you like this Write the Room, you might want to try out these ones too!
