Here’s the resources you will find within these gingerbread literacy centers:
Word cards with matching picture cards – use these as matching cards or use with our write the room recording pages. There is also a blank page so you can add additional words.
Pocket chart sentences – we have created four different sentences, each on a different background page to make sorting easier. If you don’t have an available pocket chart, simply have students create their sentences on the floor.
Fluency sentences – these are centered slightly to the right so that you can print, cut apart, hole punch on the left and place on a ring. Students might use these at a fluency center during literacy rotations or you might add to individual student book bags for practice during independent reading.
Task Cards – you will find 6 different task cards that can be used at literacy centers. Pick the ones that fit your classroom!
Word Shapes, Write the Room & ABC Order Practice Pages
To set up Write the Room: You will choose 5 or 10 word cards (or picture cards or picture cards already matched up with word cards.) Number the cards 1 – 5 or 1 – 10 depending on the recording page you give you students. Place the cards around the room. Students go on a hunt around the room and write the correct word on their recording pages. This is a great way to get your students up and moving during word work time!
Lined Writing Paper – We have included four options so you can use the ones that fit your students.
