Mini Writing Offices are Back!

Last summer, I created a mini writing office for my kindergarteners to use during independent writing time. These mini offices are a great resource and aid in students writing success. I have spruced up the mini writing office since last summer and have now made writing mini offices for advanced Kindergarten, First grade,  Second grade and Third grade.












 
These mini writing offices are small enough to fit into a pencil sized school box. Included in each pack are 21 cover options, dimensions of the writing folder, two sets of writer's toolbox labels, and all the files needed to make each mini office.




I store my students mini offices in pencil boxes in which we call our "Writer's Toolbox". In addition to our writing mini office, we store our writing pencil (any pencil that has a design on it- They love these and take well care of these "special" writing pencils), eraser, Mr. Spaceman (spacing stick from Really Good Stuff), post it notes, and mini dry erase marker and eraser.

Check these mini writing offices out at my Teacher's Notebook or TPT store.

P.S. The first 5 people to blog about the mini writing offices on their blog with a link back to my blog will receive one free copy of a mini office of their choice. Be sure to email dmastand@hotmail.com after doing so and please leave a comment. :)

I like these offices! Thank you for making them small enough to fit in a school pouch. I wish I was one of the 5, but since I'm not, I'll be heading over to TPT!

Hi Lauren,

Thanks for the comment. I could probably whip up a 3rd grade office- I am sending you an email.

I love the idea of writing offices- am heading over to TpT to check them out. Thanks!

Christine said...

This would be so much better than the writing offices I have used in the past...they were much too big and cumbersome. Thanks!

Chrissy said...

I'm so glad I found you! These are fantastic! And now they are on my wish list :-)

Wow, I love this! I am looking into making mini offices for my second graders.

I am also very interested in learning how to make my own files/worksheets that look similar to yours that are normally shared on TpT. Could you please email me at sarah@scissorsandawhisk.com and help me out?
