Unfortunately, I cannot find where I originally downloaded these posters. So, I created my own to go in my Writing Center (slightly different). You can get them here for FREE. We go over each poster before it goes up on the wall and they provide a reminder for students.
The students keep their Writing Folders in the Writing Center. I find the less they keep in the desks, the less stuff we lose! It’s also easier for me if I need to grab a writing sample or want to check their work quickly. The box is separated by groups, so I send one students from each group to grab all the folders. No line at the Writing Center!
Students keep their own supplies in their desk, but I have extras in the Writing Center for them to use. In the small drawers are crayons, markers, scissors, highlighters, colored pencils, etc. Each drawer is labeled with words and pictures. Above the drawers are my sharpened/unsharpened pencil bins.
In the larger drawers, there is a variety of writing pages and graphic organizers for students to use. Again, each drawer is labeled for students. Lastly, there is a bucket of clipboards for students to use. I’m not sure why, but my kids love using clipboards!
Do you have a Writing Center in your classroom? I’d love to see it! I am always looking for ways to improve mine for my students.
