Here's a quick idea for a literacy center - memory cards on the types of writing. In 4th grade we focus so much on personal narrative, but there are so many more purposes and types of writing! I think this inspires students to try out new types and gives them the language to name the types they see daily! I made 2 sets of cards; one black and white, and one in color. That way I can print them and copy at school, but have a colorful hard copy for the classroom. All cards available for download at Kara's Store!
