What makes this writing center different?
Set this November Writing Center up in one of three ways (or all 3 for variety!)
✅ Option One: Calendar Pocket Chart
These square vocabulary cards fit perfectly in the pockets of a calendar pocket chart. In addition, you can include the ‘Don’t Forget’ Writing Hints in the bottom row for a helpful student reference!
This is an ideal setup if you have a bulletin board near a small table. Students will gather here at their ‘free write center’ and have all tools they need within reach.
✅ Option Two: Full Page Display
Print one or more copies of the full-page word bank so students can grab a word bank and writing paper to work anywhere around the room.
✅ Option Three: Binder Ring
Print one or more copies of the square pocket chart pieces and hole punch in the corners. Put them on a binder ring. Students can grab a word bank and writing paper to work anywhere around the room.
