Writing Center/Making a List

I found this idea some time ago, just made it look a little cuter for this year!

I just post it up on my Writing Bulletin Board. We usually make a list together as a class, then they are free to do this during Daily 5 time- if they so choose!

The Peanuts Gang!

This is my hallway bulletin board! 

Right outside of my door, snoopy will be thinking about different things all year! I need to get some "back to school" items in his thoughts!

Cute 'lil decor by the door!

My fav. quote right now!

 My 3 bulletin boards. Pretty bare right now, I have started on the writing, but I still need to get my BOY activities ready!

Closer look at our pen pal class we will have this year! I'm real excited about this one!

Just a sweet something I received today from a girl I tutored all summer! Nice to be appreciated! 

Writing Center Activity

Here is an updated version of a writing center activity I do in my classroom! It's called "The Neverending Story!"

I use this in my writing center as one of the choices for the kiddos. I usually introduce this with whole group writing with the class to start the story. Introduce the characters and tell the setting. I show them what quality work looks like then I put blank sheets in the center for them to continue the story. I keep them in a binder so it turns into a long story. Every now and then I will read the progress to the class. It's fun! also made a cover page for the binder!
