Today we are excited to share with you a simple writing center that uses our favorite fall concepts to encourage children to read.
But it's that time of year at school when all systems are go and in a blink, Monday becomes Friday. It's also a great time of the year to mix things up a little bit for young learners.
We haven't "wrote the room" in a while, so I put together a telling time write the room activity for math early in the week. We were wrapping up our work with time to the half hour and this activity went over really well.
My firsties thought it was fun and I thought it was a wonderful assessment tool every o'clock and thirty time was somewhere in the room.

Since our time write the room activity was such a hit, I was really excited to pull out a nonstandard measurement write the room activity I used last year with one of my favorite books Measuring Penny by Loreen Leedy.
I love to kick off my unit on measurement with Measuring Penny. It is a great introduction to measurement since it covers many types. Every year my students really love this book, with this year's group being no exception. You can also use the picture cards with other measuring units, like cubes, paper clips, and even rulers.

With clip boards in hand, students sorted the words on their recording sheets.
I actually used it for morning work one morning, since we ran out of time to do it the day before. It was a great way to start the day and awesome practice. As a side note, any of these activities could work as a center as well.

But once I got going, it was hard to stop. It's a fabulous way to get students moving and can be used with any subject.
It's my goal to use this format once a week for something. If I come up with anything of interest, I'll be sure to share.Write Around the Room: Write Around the Room is just that–giving kiddos the task of writing the words that they see in any room.
