I wanted to take time to share with you…one of my favorite activities I’ve made for my classroom! What activity am I talking about??? WRITING STRIPS! My little ones LOVE using writing strips back at the guided reading table! They beg to work on them each time they come to the table…and because of this, I’ve had to keep making new sets to keep up with them!
If you are not familiar with my writing strips they are the easiest way to differentiate your kiddos at guided reading! I give each student a writing strip, a dry erase board/marker, and they are set! Once they’ve completed their strip they will rotate with a partner at the table. Also, several of my readers use the writings strips for a literacy center choice!
Here is a look at CVC strips! The student is using the independent writing strip!
How do I store all of my fabulous strips? I have each set printed, laminated, and rubber-banded! I then stash them in my guided reading caddy! They fit great and are easy to access! 🙂 If my kiddos have mastered a set then I will then place it in my writing strips basket!
