Writing Center Starter Topics - September Freebie!

Hey all !  Happy Tuesday!  

 I want to share a freebie with you!  I have been working on a FULL writing center packet lately and thought it would be nice to share my first one with you all for free

  This is a small.. and I mean small glimpse of what I will be including in my future writing packets to come. Next one is coming up in a few weeks for October. =)

September is full of fun things!  There are holidays like Grandparents Day, Labor Day, Fall, Johnny Appleseed and if your like me, your finally back at school.  I tried to have a lot of different variety of writing cards for the little ones to be excited to write about.

Isn't is so darn cute and easy to use?  I used book rings to hold it all together.  It was so easy.

Here are some prompt cards included.

These writing cards are appropriate for 1st-2nd.  I think the little ones will love flipping through the cards during center time and decide which topic to write about.

Here are some writing printables I added as well.

I included 2 different kinds (each have primary and secondary lines)

The way to create these writing centers is easy.

*cut and laminate the cards for future use
*using a hole punch, punch the top left part of the card.
*put all cards together using a book ring.
*have kids flip through them to decide which topic to write about during center time.

This freebie includes:
*35 writing topic cards to choose from
*4 writing prompts (primary * secondary lines)
*directions and pictures to set up the center

Now in the beginning of the year some of my little ones struggle with writing.  That is totally fine.  I plan on having them try their best with writing and just work on their drawing to explain what they are trying to say.  Slow and steady wins the race and within time they will build the confidence to write more and more.

It's so easy to make and will last a very long time.  You can put this in your September bin and take it out every year for the month and your writing center is set.  Ahh I love the sound of that!!
