Writing Center Starter Kit

This starter kit gives you everything you need for your kindergarten or first grade writing center!

Whether you’re setting up a station as a separate space in your classroom or making go-to writing folders each student can keep in her desk and pull out during writing time, this starter kit has you covered.

It even has EDITABLE sheets including word lists you can customize with classmates’ names or holiday words AND writing rubrics you can use to assess students’ progress.

Peek Inside the Writing Center

The epic pack includes tons of done-for-you teaching tools you can use in your writing center right away…

If you’re setting up a designated space in your classroom, hang up the colorful bunting to add a fun pop of color.

Then fill your center with helpful tools kids can use as they’re writing, including alphabet posters, alphabet charts and digraph blend sheets.

Plus, 20 themed word lists showing common words for holidays, family, school and other kid-friendly topics.

(I included a UK version AND an editable sheet so you can type a list of classmates’ names, make a word list for your town…anything under the sun!)

Help students spell their sight word lists correctly with handy Dolch, Fry and combination lists.

Then, decide if you want to bind the writing paper into a writing journal using the set of cover pages.

(I printed mine on neon paper to give them a fun pop of color, but you could use white and have kids color them too.)

The set includes a variety of writing paper for you to choose from, including primary and single-lined options.

There’s even a sheet with an EDITABLE rubric so you can type in any writing standards!

When students are finished, have them check that they remembered five key writing rules.

Voila! Setting up a highly-effective writing center is now as easy as hitting “print”.
