postheadericon French Mini Offices

Awhile ago I came across these awesome mini offices at the Busy Teacher Cafe.  However since they were English I couldn’t use them. After searching far and wide for a french version, I decided to make one of my own!

Just like the Busy teacher mini offices I use two letter size file folders to make the mini offices. This gives you 6 panels to fill.

I originally made these mini offices for grade 2. They used them mainly to make sure that the high frequency words were spelled correctly in their writing. However since I moved to Kindergarten I tried them out closer to the end of the year and they absolutely loved them! It really opened up them writing and they wrote so much more. I will definitely give them out earlier in the year next year.

I have include the word wall as a pdf, but also as a word document of you ant to tailor it to your students needs.

postheadericon Name Tracing Center

At this centre I have each child picture and name in dotted print. I have 2 names per page and I put them in a plastic sleeve. Students trace the names with a erasable marker

postheadericon Name Sheet

I have this sheet at any station where students are writing or making words. This includes rainbow names, the magnetic letter center, the play-doh center and the overhead center. I always make sure to also include myself on the sheet. The students love writing their friends names.

Have students pictures and names at all name centers for easy access.
