This December writing center is a must-have for any first or second grade classroom! Each month is jam-packed with writing pieces that align to the writing standards. By using these monthly centers, your students will be continuously exposed to writing in different genres and you will see their writing grow and strengthen every day.
I use this monthly writing center during guided reading center rotations; however, you can use any time you see fit, such as an early finisher or writing rotations.
Each month comes with different themes, but the type of writing stays the same to keep a routine for your students. No more hearing, “But, what do I do now?!” or having to teach how to do the center every month!
The different components included in each month are:
- Labels for different writing pieces
- Writing station sign
- Vocabulary picture cards
- Writing prompts – focus on all different types of writing like letters, creative stories, narratives, etc.
- Book review
- This or that? Opinion Writing
- Picture this
- How to stories
- KWL Charts & informative writing stories
- Story Starters
- Extra writing paper
Different themes for December include: holidays, winter, and more.
There are vocab picture cards and informative writing pages included for holiday celebrations around the world. These include Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas in: USA, Mexico, Sweden, England, Germany, Italy, and Canada.
Primary and intermediate lined writing paper is included in every month!
