Write the Room Activities for Spring

Does your class ever use Write the Room activities? I just love using Write the Room in my classroom, because my students are always so excited to partake. Any activity that makes my students forget they are learning is a win in my book! This simple activity will do just that all while helping your students practice SO many key skills. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite Write the Room activities to use in the spring, and a freebie too! 


Use these fun and engaging write the room activities to get your students excited about practicing important math skills this spring.

What is Write the Room?

If you aren't already familiar, Write the Room is a great way to get some practice of key skills that have already been taught. If you teach in a primary classroom, I'm sure you already know repetition is the key to success. 

Use these fun and engaging write the room activities to get your students excited about practicing important math skills this spring.Write the Room makes continued repetition easy and fun for young learners! During this activity, students will walk around the classroom with a recording sheet in search of cards displayed throughout the classroom. Each card will target a specific task or skill. Once students locate a card, they will solve the problem or complete the task and write the answer on their recording sheet. 

It is an easy way to incorporate some movement into your day.  It's a great way to mix up your lessons and help restless children re-focus after a long time at their desks. 

Write the Room is also a great way to get a lot of practice without a traditional worksheet.  Here are some of my favorite Write the Room activities for Spring.

Spring Write the Room Activities


Two Digit Addition and Subtraction

First Graders need LOTS of practice with 2 digit addition and subtraction. It's can be a tricky business, but Write the Room makes it much more fun and engaging to practice. 

These fun addition and subtraction activities are a great addition to your write the room activities for spring as students are practicing important math facts.
To help my students master this skill, I created a Write the Room resource for two-digit addition and subtraction without regrouping. Both of these spring-themed centers feature 24 task cards with 3 recording sheets for easy differentiation.

I love using these activities as they were intended for Write the Room, but these are also fantastic when used as a center game! 

To do this, simply print the cards and store them in a box or baggie. Students will take a set of cards to their desk along with a recording sheet and fill in their page as they go through each task card. They can work alone or with a partner.  You can even turn it into a game of Four in a Row.  There's a little luck and a lot of math practice that makes this activity fun no matter how you use it.

Master Place Value 

If you're looking for a fun way to practice place value this spring, I have just the thing! My Place Value Write the Room resource will help your students practice representing tens and ones place value to 100 in an engaging way. 

These fun place value activities are a great addition to your write the room activities for spring as students are practicing important math facts.
I created this resource with adorable "Lucky Charms" style graphics making this the perfect springtime center to add to your rotation. 

Use this center as a Write the Room activity for your whole class, or use the cards in a math game format and allow students to draw cards and find the corresponding box on their recording sheet. 

In this resource, you will find 24 task cards in color and black and white as well as 3 different recording sheets to allow for differentiation. 

I like to start with the recording sheet that only includes 12 boxes and then revisit this activity later in the week with the 18 or 24 box option. This is a great way to make sure my students are getting lots of practice and build up their skill set.
