The Three Things Every At Home Writing Center Should Have
After years of being a public school early education teacher, Kristen decided to take her love of creating beautiful and inspiring learning materials from the classroom to your home or business.
In my classroom, I build writing into every activity, space and moment of our school day. At home however, writing can get lost in the busy.
To make sure writing is always available in my home I stole a teacher trick...Writing Centers.
The Three Things Every At Home Writing Center Should Have:
Make sure paper and writing instruments are ALWAYS available. This means making sure they are low enough, easy enough to open and never run out.
The simplest way to do this is to create baskets of paper and writing instruments on a low shelf in a play area or other living space.
Of course this will take some very serious chats about the rules of writing (only on paper/not on walls), but these are important boundaries for your child to have both at home and school so have the chat.
Want to make sure paper never runs out? Scrap is best! In my house and classroom every flyer, newspaper, used piece wrapping paper and rough draft makes its way to our paper bin.
