I know I do. I want my kids to be engaged and excited about every part of the writing process. I want them to LOVE to write. Writing is a HUGE part of our day. However, the novelty wears off. When we do the SAME exact thing…year after year…the novelty wears off.
We need to change it up to make it exciting for both us AND the kids. One more thing to make it fun. One more thing to make it exciting. One more thing to keep them engaged. Lots and LOTS of options. They also need freedom. The autonomy to choose what they want.
After all, our goal is to instill in them a LOVE of writng, right?! Sometimes…a lot of times…kids need a nudge. Most of the time they need a giant PUSH. Clearly it was time for a writing center overhaul. I gave my writing center a little makeover full of activities and prompts to keep them excited about writing.
My kids will also be able to choose to write what THEY want. I also love that my first grade friends will be able to utilize this resource to the fullest and offer their friends in need of more support lots of options as well. The task cards are divided up into different writing genres….
I will probably choose a couple of task cards for the kids to work from and add more as the year progresses.A favorite center this year in first grade was our writing center.
My students LOVED to write and they always wanted to sit at this table! The table fit 2 people, but they always tried to squeeze in more:).
