Autumn Write the Room and more Literacy Activities

We are on to another round of five literacy work stations.
The groups are doing a great job at understanding what to do, knowing what supplies are needed and where to find them, working together as a group, and keeping on task. YAY!

Activity rotation cards can be found {here}

UPDATE: I have created bundles of month-long literacy centers, to make things easy for Kindergarten teachers!
The packs include literacy activities in these 5 areas of learning:
1)Writing 2)Listening to reading 3) Word work (sight words) 4) Phonics/alphabet 5) Phonemic awareness
The packs are laid out, week by week, for the entire month. They include 5 stations for students to rotate through per week, with all of the components you’ll need for each activity.
Assessment tools are included to help keep learning on track and to keep your students accountable.
Learning is spiraled throughout the month, to help students build on their prior learning. 
Check out the first pack in the series {here}

Hi Anita,

We were wondering how you were able to get the dotted names in your rainbow writing activity. Do you use a special website?

Looks like a great activity, we have about 120 students in total that we'd want to use this for.

Thanks in advance,

Krispin

The dotted names were made using a dashed font. Just Google 'dashed font' to find one you like, then download it onto your computer and create your papers.
