The Writing Center

All year long, our writing center gets lots of action. We don’t do very many changes to the basic items that are in the center but we do add little props along the way hoping they will inspire new ideas, conversation, and creativity. Some of the everyday basics we add to our writing center include…

  • Crayons of different types
  • Markers or different types
  • Short and tall pencils
  • Paper of various types and sizes
  • Staplers
  • Hole Punches
  • Clip Boards

To inspire additional interest in the writing center and to promote new thinking, I often set out different books around the center, letter blocks, words, photos, plastic animals, watercolor paints, and items from nature.
