Students love to Write the Room. It is a great opportunity to get your students moving as they hunt the room for words that reinforce the current phonics rule they are studying.
And it is so easy to prep! After hiding the words around the room, provide your students with a clipboard and the recording sheet. You will see how engaged your students are in their learning as they match the pictures to the correct spelling pattern.
There are several ways to use this in the classroom.
You can have the entire class hunt for the words all at one time.
Or you can use this as a center activity. Sometimes it is hard for the children to sit or attend to one area of the classroom during centers or your Daily 5 rotations. By giving them an activity that allows them to walk around the room, they expel some of that energy that they try to contain to meet your expectations of good behavior.
My students always cheer when I announce one of our Word Work activities is Write the Room. That is why I created 38 games for 38 different phonemes so that this game could be a regular part of our weekly routine!
