My kinders have been begging me for a new ‘dino’ themed write the room activity to I had to whip something up this evening to appease before we completely finish up our unit this week. Of course, I LOVE these activities because the allow me to differentiate in response to the learning profile of my kinesthetic mover and shakers. I also try to make sure I tier them for those students who need a little extra time to complete the task versus those who are writing like lightening. Everyone gets the benefit of getting to move around, practice writing words they can read in our room/hallway AND are neither bored because the task is too easy or frustrated because they can’t complete the task.
It’s really a popular activity in my classroom and I hope you find it useful as well. Of course, once they complete the sheet, they have to read it to a friend. (This also helps my students who sport interpersonal intelligence and just can’t get enough of chatting it up with others. This way, they actually have a specific REASON to be yakking and that’s all good for me.) So go ahead and click on the picture above to grab yours.
If you actually use this, I’d love to hear from you so drop me a note in my comment box if you get the chance.
I also wanted to give you a heads up on a GREAT giveaway you’re not gonna want to miss. Mel over at Suesstastic Blog is having a 1st Blogiversary event. Over 45 PAID items from her blogging buddies (me included) and a bunch of her own items. It’s super easy to enter.
