Write the Room in Pre-K

Children love Write-the-Room games because they love to wander around the room, move, and get active. Here are two Write-the-Room activities that Pre-K children can do.

Find the Letters in Your Name

For this game, I folded a piece of paper in half and wrote “Letters in my name” on one half and “Letters not in my name” on the other half. Children attached these to clipboards and walked around the room looking for letters in the classroom. When they found a letter, they determined which half of the paper to write it on.

Survey the Room

In this activity, children get to go around the classroom surveying their friends for likes and dislikes. I have these in a pocket folder in our writing center for the children to get when they choose. To use this printable, children ask a teacher to fill in the blank with whatever they want to survey their friends: “Do you like _____?” Some children ask for the word to be spelled while they write the letters. Some examples my prekinders have done are: Do you like pizza? pink? Scooby Doo? chocolate milk? and many more.¬†Children go around the room asking other children their question, and writing the names in the yes/no boxes. If they don’t know how to write a name, they copy it from a name tag or ask the child to write it.
