Traditional literacy activities and vocabulary lessons have kids reading sight words and filling in a blank space for the correct vocabulary word.

While some traditional strategies work well during some school years, the younger kids need more engagement.

Let’s learn more about a write the room center as a great way to help kids improve vocabulary and early writing skills.

Why Kids Love Write the Room Activities

Our holiday collection of Write the Room activities are an interactive language arts learning experience with a fun twist.  

Kids get to learn new vocabulary and practice early writing skills while interacting with their environment. 

Simply hang the picture cards around the room at the kids eye level, and give your kids the write the room recording sheets.

The kids will walk around searching for the write the room word cards that you’ve hung up. As they find a card, they write the word on their recording sheet. 

If you don’t want to hang the cards around the room, you can put them in a fun March or St. Patrick’s Day sensory bin. Kids can sift through the sensory base to find and record March vocabulary words.

More Ways to Use a Write the Room Activity

Active children love walking around the room looking for the next picture card location.

It’s as though you are sending them on a picture and word hunt – perfect for building confidence in their early reading and writing skills.

But, what if you don’t want the kids walking around the room, or simply don’t have enough spaces to hang the cards. No worries – I’ve got you!

Other ways teachers use write the room printables:

  • Sensory bin activity: put the cards inside a sensory bin, and let the kids pull them to transfer onto their recording sheet.

  • Guided Reading: Use with kids in a small group. Guided reading groups are a valuable time to work with kids in small groups. Give kids level 2 cards and help them segment the beginning sounds, middle sound, and ending sound of each vocab word.

  • Morning work tubs: Put the recording sheets and word cards in a tub that kids can pull and work on when they get to school – waiting on others to arrive.

  • Scoot game: place the cards on different desks around the room. Each kid gets a recording sheet. Set a timer for 1 minute. When the timer goes off, the kids take their recording sheet and scoot to the next desk to record another word. Do this until they’ve rotated to all 16 vocabulary cards.
