Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas $100 Macy's Gift Card Giveaway, a Valentine's Day Writing Center and Tons of Valentine's Resources and Freebies!

St. Valentine's Day Writing Center!

Hello and welcome back to another addition of our Online Sunshine Committee Gift Card Giveaways! This month, a Macy's Gift Card! 

But first, this month's tip!  

This is one of my favorite, inexpensive, writing centers, especially for new teachers. All you need is a piece of poster board and some sticky notes. Draw, cut out and laminate a seasonal item, this heart for Valentines, a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day, etc. You can use your document camera to project some clip art and trace it even! :) When you first introduce this center to your class, you will need to model it and role play because everyone will want to walk back and forth to get a sticky note, but that's OK, as the year rolls on they will get use to the system and the best part....you can teach your small groups without interruption. When you are with your reading groups and intervention groups, this writing center can be a center in the corner of the room or it can be a center that the children do as seat work. They may get one word at a time to spell the word correctly, to jog their memory of an idea or even to introduce larger vocabulary words into their writing. 
They love it!
There are so many words, you can change it up weekly, monthly or pick the ones that work with the vocabulary from your reading series and leave them up all year.
