I ventured into my classroom today with my 2 year old. I actually managed to get quite a bit unpacked and put away with him playing with his cars and trucks and wanting to take out magnadoodles, blocks, markers, books, everything!!! I am excited beyond words to be moving into a bigger classroom. My wheels were turning today as I pictured where I wanted everything to go. Especially my word work center because I just finished wrapping up how it will be organized this year.
I am going to print, laminate, and hole punch each task card. They will be held together with a ring. **Sorry, no pictures, haven't had time to put it together with a 2 year old running around**. I will create a separate set of task cards for each of my reading groups, based on ability. I plan on spending A LOT of time at the beginning introducing each task card along with expectations. I created recording sheets for some of the task cards. I actually think I will be using a word work journal this year to cut down on some copies. You can check out the task cards and recording sheets, from my TpT store. I would love to hear from you if you download them, along with any suggestions for more activities. Follow my TpT store for more fun stuff to come. What other awesome ideas to you have for word work??? Enjoy!
Now posted in my TpT store are Writing Center Task Cards. I wanted the set to be versatile for throughout the year. There are 132 task cards! WHOA!!! Some cards have writing topics on them like a rainy day, a time I was excited, the beach, my family, etc. There are topics for creating lists, recipes, newspapers, poems, and stories. I figured I would just knock them all out at once so I can pick and choose throughout the year. I think they will work great for an anchor chart bulletin board to give kiddos topics to write about, as well as being hole punched and on a ring in the writing center. Check it out in my TpT store!
