Writing Center Activities and Writing Template Freebies

I have mentioned before how much my kiddos l.o.v.e. to write.

In {this post} I shared about writing lists, and how this took the fear out of writing.

We have continued to work our way through this pack:
Lists, Lists, Lists: The Ultimate Word List Set for Your Writing Center
Ultimate Word List Set {for your writing center}

I left several list options available in the Writing Center, and have added some labelling pages.

 My students are great at using letter sound clues to figure out which words go in the spaces.

Along with writing lists and labelling pages, we have been doing some sentence writing using our sight words. By using words they know how to read and write, my students are confident in their own writing too!

Here are some samples using the sight words 'I see...'

We keep track of the sight words we've learned in these individual, portable Word Wall books:

Student word booklets for the writing center

You can find them {here}

They also do a great job s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g out the words they don't know!
Lots of letter sound practice is paying off! We make sure to take time to Phonercise daily:
Phonercise {phonics+exercise} letters & letter sound activity
 Phonics + Exercise = Phonercise
FREE Phonercise Chart {phonics+exercise letters & letter sounds activity
find the FREE chart {here}
Read about how to 'Phonercise' {here}.

We'll be stretching lots of words using my CVC, CCVC, & CVCC words pack:
Work Work activities to practice CVC, CVCC and CCVC words- perfect as a literacy center

Of course we HAD to use our new spacemen to keep spaces between the words!

 These are from Really Good Stuff. The pack includes a class set of small spacemen and one large one to use when modelling writing lessons on a chart. It also includes a spaceman stamp that can be used to correct writing pages, indicating where a space was needed.
