Writing Centers/Folder Activities
Use the following ideas to create file folder activities for centers or stations.
The Writing Tree- Take a small, fake evergreen tree (or put a cool branch in a bucket of sand for a deciduous tree) and hang these writing prompts from it. Place it at your writing center and turn it into a literacy station.
The Peanut Jar- Another great idea from The Teacher's Desk. Cut out the peanut jar, glue edges to the inside of a file folder, stick peanuts behind it and put the directions on the other side of the folder. Done! (Sorry the peanut jar is blurry-I could NOT find a better picture. Let me know if you have one.)
