You know... the day where you spend most of your time planning.... soaking up the last minutes with your family and for me... watching football all.day.long.
I wanted to stop in real quick to share a new little favorite writing activity of mine (and my students!) I have done this for years and in a variety of ways, but I was finally able to put it into a complete set to share with YOU!
Writing can scary for our little guys (and girls!) in the classroom. They often struggle with what to write... how long to write... how to spell words, etc...
The Silly Sentence Station is here to help you (and your little writers!) fix those problems! It's a simple but fun writing activity that will have them begging for more :)
This alternative writing station is perfect for your centers, once-a-week writing theme, morning work, or whenever you feel the need to introduce and implement it.
My students ABSOLUTELY love the Silly Sentence Station! It's quick... they are confident because the way I designed it includes visuals AND the words, and they get to use their imagination!
After many years.... here is the final (although I keep adding to it!) pack of "The Silly Sentence Station":
There are a variety of ways to set this up in your room including but not limited to:
Put the cards on Popsicle sticks! Students love being able to choose from the collection of cards and it makes a simple and organized center for you!
You can easily put the cards into bags and either write the title or use the provided cards in the packet to label your buckets or bags.
Students will simply pull a card from the bag and write :)
Sometimes the sentences are quite silly!
If you already have a pocket chart set-up in your writing center, you can easily use the provided cards to create a writing center that hangs on the wall or board and leaves more room for your writers!
Your students will be begging for more Silly Sentences!! It's simple, engaging, and your students get creative as they write and create a visual!
In the pack you will find 48 sorting cards (16 "who", 16 "did what" and 16 "where" cards). There are also four different templates (2 full page and 2 different half page templates!)
The pack is on sale right now and you can hop on over to check it out by clicking HERE or on the picture below :)
I know many of you are on the countdown to Christmas Break....... so until then....
