Writing Center

Here is my writing has crayons, markers, colored pencils, stencils, letter stamps, beginning sound stamps...and all kinds of fun paper for the children to use. There is a shelf to the right of this table that holds quite a few of the supplies. I also added my scissor idea I originally found on Pinterest.
This is how I store stamps for the children to use for beginning sound stamping...I found this tool caddy at the thrift store. The drawers have dividers, so I have two letter sounds per drawer. These stamps are just the "picture" stamps. I have all of the letters in another tool caddy on the shelf to the right.

I made a cute label for the top of the container!

To begin the year, I put my ABC bottle and a popcorn bottle with the children's names in it. They color the letter or the name when they find it in the bottle. It's an easy activity for them and it's a good way to introduce them to the center. They can, of course, also do "free" writing there if they want to.

Thanks for looking and have a super day!

I love your writing center! I saw those little colored cup containers at Michaels and now I want to go back and get them! So cute!

I saw them there also... I got mine a few years ago from Highlights Magazine for returning their yes/no slips. Can't beat free stuff!!
