Today Mom discusses her writing center even though she's been sick and only feels at about 80% (hang in there Mom). At the writing center, students practice their writing skills in an independent, but supported environment.
Here's what the writing center looks like:
On the bulletin board there are task cards for each day of the week and in the basket below is the corresponding work page for each day. Next to the bulletin board is a magnetic word wall with thematic words on it.
Want a cool magnetic word wall like this one? Just stop by your local sheet metal/furnace store and ask them to cut out the size you need. Then attach it to a wall or shelf with screws. Easy peasy!
If you want to set up a writing center that's easy and ready to go, here are some products to get you started!
