Students Will Love The Winter Writing Center
Students who have different choices at your writing center will enjoy independent writing more.
The Winter Writing Center has multiple activities for your students depending on their ability level or interests.
Your students will have the choice of 16 different types of writing paper to write about all about the winter.
How Will This Help My Students At Their Writing Centers?
It’s difficult to choose writing center activities because your student’s abilities are not one-size-fits-all.
Differentiation is difficult at any independent literacy stations, especially at your writing stations.
That’s why it’s important to offer activities for your students who are just beginning to write words as well as providing challenging writing activities for your students who are writing sentences and paragraphs. This food writing station meets the needs of your diverse learners as they learn to write words, sentences, and paragraphs independently.
