extending your writing center

In a writing center you can use the alphabet word wall to focus on letter formation, writing words, and even letter tracing by laminating the cards and having the children trace the word cards.

Place the word cards in a tray and have the children hang them below the correct letter. (This works great if you are using Stikki clips to hang the cards, so that the kids don’t have to mess with tape or sticky tack.)

  1. Love the freebies and hands-on activities! I have trouble with some of the pictures/words for the vowel sounds, such as “avocado” and “aquarium” for Aa, because preK and early K students need to hear the short-a sounds in these words to really cement the learning. I would not be able to use those activities because it would confuse the younger learners.
    Thanks!
