Making Words October Writing Center
Making Words, an October writing center, is an engaging activity that builds vocabulary, concepts of print, letter recognition, and writing skills.
Simply print the Making Words resource, set out glue sticks. crayons, pencils, and scissors, and you will have an independent writing center for Fall and Halloween.
Students read, build, write, and illustrate the October themed vocabulary word printed at the top of each page.
To support emergent readers, there is a graphic representing each picture. The 1″ letter tiles at the bottom of each page are scrambled – designed for the students to cut and paste – making the word at the top of the page.
Knowing how little time teachers have, this no-prep October writing center makes it easy to establish an engaging center activity, while supporting Kindergarten and 1st grade ELA Common Core Standards.
After building the October themed vocabulary word, the kiddos write the word, and draw an illustration to show their understanding of the word. The October themed words are pumpkin, Autumn, candy corn, Fall, ghost, acorn, leaves, owl, bats, and Halloween.
Differentiating is a breeze with this October writing center. If you’re kids have mastered transferring, or copying, words correctly, you can challenge them to write a sentence using the vocabulary word at the top of the worksheet.
