Last year in January I started using write and stamp the room activities with my students. This became part of our Friday routine. My students worked so well in small groups writing and stamping the room, that I created different write and stamp the room activities for the rest of the year. I also decided to create A-Z write and stamp the room sheets to begin using this fall.
While this teaches my students independence and reinforcing copying and handwriting skills, it also allowed me time to pull individual students for conferences or just to catch up on something with them.
HUGE success in my room, and the kids LOVED this activity.
