This makes a great Literacy Center and the students love it. I made/use the cards based on my phonics skill. If we were studying the letter "Bb", I would use all the Bb cards for write the room. I teach 2 letters a week, so I will mix and match my cards to follow the letters I teach. My classroom does not have much space, so hanging lots of posters and charts (other than the charts for our current skills) was not possible. If I wanted my students to "write the room", I needed to provide them with some "print."
All you have to do is print, laminate and cut out the cards. Figure out which ones you want to use and tape them in random areas around the room-walls, doors, furniture. The students get a copy of the Write the Room list and a clipboard. They will walk around the room, find the word cards, and write the word on the list beside the number that it matches (the cards are numbered).
I included 2 recording sheets and two sets of cards, one has the whole word, and one set has the first letter missing for differentiation. Each letter has 8 cards and I used short vowels and ending sound for x. My next packets will be short vowel and long vowel word families and blends.
Here is what they look like:
Here are the different packets:
