Writing Office for the Primary Grades

writing office for primary grades

My students were having difficulty staying focused at writing center.  I decided to make theses folders for them to grab from the writing center and take back to their seats.  I love that they have the resources and tools they need without having to physically be at the writing center.  It is also a visual reminder for other students to leave them alone while they write.

 I only make enough in my classroom for the number of students who will be at writing center.  You could also make one for each student in your class if it fits your needs.

As you can see, there's not a lot of space for 4-5 students to work at my writing center.  I was also hanging our anchor charts back here, but when students would go somewhere else in the room to write alone, they couldn't refer to them.  This was a problem.

So, these writing offices were born!  There are tons of amazing writing office options on TPT, but I was looking for something simple for my students.  I wanted them to have easy access to sights words, the alphabet, a writer's checklist, and graphic organizers.

This is the front of the writing office.  I got the green file folders from Amazon.  Click the photo below for an affiliate link to the folders.

I recommend laminating the offices once you get them put together.  Students can also then check off the items on the Writer's Checklist after writing.  

They always want to ask what to do when they're done.  I included an early finisher list of things to do, so you never have to answer that question!

My students really rely on sentence starters right now when writing.  Each type of writing's graphic organizer tool contains them for each sentence of their writing.  I also added the alphabet at the bottom, because correct letter formation is super important.

Finally, I added a mini word wall for sight words. 

The printables for the writing office also come in black and white within the resource.  They would be really fun printed on Astrobrights paper!  For the color version, I went with cool colors to provide a more calming workspace.  

You can click any of the photos in the blog post if you think this might be a tool your young writer's need!  Happy writing, and thanks for stopping by!
