Writing strips in the k-1 classroom! An engaging, effective, and independent word writing activity! Writing strips build strong writers! Best of all? They are FUN! Tara West from Little Minds at Work here! I love to use these strips e.v.e.r.y. day in my classroom! We use them back at the guided reading table and the students also use them as a choice during their literacy centers! The kids eat these up and beg for new sets once they've mastered them!
I also like to use the writing strips as a way to get the kids started back at the reading table before I make my way back. It usually takes me a minute or so to get all of the students settles into their daily five so I leave the strips back at my table. The students are able to quickly get started on them without me there!
I've made a variety of skills for the strips, but here are a few; CVC, CVCe, blends, digraphs, vowel teams, and CVC/CVCE mixed strips!
I also created a freebie set of strips! I used these strips at the beginning of the year as we were getting started! You can grab these by clicking below!
Have a great week!
