Writing Topic Cards

"But teacher, I don't know what to write about!"

How many times a day do you hear that?!  For me, at least 23 times... the same number of students in my class ;)  It can certainly make any writing period frustrating, for both me and my littles.  So, I knew I had to come up with something!
And then the lightbulb went off... Writing topic cards!  With word banks!  Once I got started, I just couldn't stop.  I created over 100 topic cards across 11 categories {myself, people, places, animals, snacks, sports, travel/transportation, holidays, make-believe, school, and seasons & weather}.
Here's a look at one of the topics under the "Seasons & Weather" category:
I designed the cards so that they could be easily organized on binder rings.  I included tiny circles in the template so when you punch, the holes will all be even! ;)  The category title cards also have little tabs so you can quickly flip around.  ALL of the cards fit on jumbo binder rings {as seen in the photos above}, but if you want to make smaller sets...
...just separate them on mini binder rings!  I snipped off the tabs for the individual sets, but you could certainly leave them on!  Another look at six of the sets in my writing center:
If they pick a different card each day, my firsties can write about something NEW for over 100 DAYS!  What?!!  So far, my kiddos are *LOVING* it... and so am I!!!!  
And here's another fun look at my writing center!
Of course I had to share the love with my fellow teachers!  I bundled all of the cards together in one set for your classroom!  Writing Topic Cards {PLUS Vocab}!
