Draw and Write Writing Activities in Action

Sunday, July 23, 2017 No comments
My class absolutely LOVED working on my Draw and Write Writing Activities this past year. I used them both as a center and as a whole class writing activity.

Here's a snapshot of one of the centers from my Draw and Write February Set that my students completed this past year.

They LOVED doing this activity as a center. Each student received their little packet during our center time and worked on their draft and practice illustration. You can see one of the packets in progress here:

Then, after a quick spellcheck from me, the students published their good copies and we hung them on the wall! They loved this activity so much we did them throughout the rest of the year! Some were done as center activities, where the students worked independently, others we did as our whole class writing assignment for the week. The students loved doing them both ways!

Here's a snapshot of another Draw and Write activity my class did that I'm planning to include as a special gift to my newsletter subscribers just in time for back to school season.

Classroom Decor Time

It's hard to believe that the back to school season will be upon us soon (and may have already started in your area!)

One of my favorite things about this time of year is choosing a theme for my classroom each year. I have a few tried and true themes that I go back to all the time, but I also love trying out new themes from time to time!

I'm excited to offer a line of Classroom Decor Items in my Teachers Pay Teachers store to help make choosing a new theme easy for you! I have SIX different Classroom Decor packs ready and in my store for you to choose from!! All of my decor packs are JAMMED full of goodies for you!!

I'm still deciding which one I want to use this year!! I love them all so much it will be hard to decide!
Which one is your favorite?

If you already have decor items and just want to add to your set, I also offer alot of the parts from each pack as individual purchases! 

Check out all my Decor Items including the Individual parts of each theme HERE!
