Organizing a writing center for students is a never ending job. Every time you walk by the center, you stop to straighten or fix something. How can you get students to take pride in the center and instill self motivated skills to tidy up? Provide the Pacon Classroom Keepers Management Center is a step in the right direction. The sturdy corrugated unit is a breeze to assemble. Being the ever present teacher, assembly provided lessons in reading, following directions, and teamwork demonstrating to students real world examples of why the skills they are learning in school will transfer to a lifetime of information. Not to mention the sense of pride and accomplishment when the final Classroom Keeper Management Center was assembled and displayed for all to see. Cue the ohhh and ahhhh!
Another lesson revealed itself determining the necessary equipment and supplies to be placed into the Classroom Keeper Management Center to make our Writing Center a fully functioning area to demonstrate writing skills covering the entire Common Core State Standards. Lists were created by students were graphed showing a clear picture of the items needed. Delegation and distribution of the supplies completed our math lesson!
A writing center wouldn’t be complete with out dictionaries, and bulletin boards providing cues and examples of punctuation and proofreading on the bulletin board.
