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}

I love the Classmate Write The Room! What a great idea. I have never understood why being able to read friends' names was ever taken off of our reading skills. (where I teach, anyway) I think it's so important. It's environmental print for the kids! Thanks for sharing!

I love the classroom write the room idea. I usually use their pictures in photo albums with their name or sight words that students practice copying. I will have to try your idea though, endless possibilities for yours. You could even add math facts under them for math write the room.
Question: For the Rainbow Writing, how are the letter cards set up? Are they already cut and mixed in a container or do the kids have to cut them?

Thanks for the great ideas!

Hi Desiree, I pre-cut the letters and have them in a container to save time. They are in a bin along with the full-sized page sheets of letters to search for. I put a full-class amount in the container and they get what they need. Hope this helps!

Hi Anita - I LOVE any and ALL Write the Room activities. I especially like your Classmate Write the Room. Is the frame for the student pictures available in a packet? Also, what font did you use for the names?
Thanks,
Pearl

Hi Pearl, I used the font Century Gothic to make the names. The recording sheet is a free download, but the frames are not included as they are purchased clipart. If you're looking for more Write the Room activities, I have a pack that will keep your kiddos busy ALL year!
