Transcript of UDL-Writing Center

The goal of UDL is to provide:

1. Multiple means of representation

2. Multiple means of action and expression

3. Multiple means of engagement-This can also be described as the “what”, the “how”, and the “why” of learning.

Goals of UDL?
Why UDL?
UDL is an approach that allows children to create, explore,and manipulate materials that will foster learning in line with their developmental levels.

What is UDL?
UDL focuses not only on a child’s right to be physically apart of an inclusive classroom but also on their right to be included an engaged in the general curriculum as well.

I'm sure you can think of many ways to make these for your classrooms writing center!
Have students walk around the room and write down any words they find. You can use clipboards, fun paper and different types of writing utensils. And don’t forget the silly glasses for added fun!

Write the Room:
Play Your Cards Right:

Three key components define the benefits an inclusive UDL classroom creates-access, participation, and support.

All children will have access to classroom curriculum and their learning environment.

All children can participate in class activities and routines by scaffolding and intervention

All teachers have the tools necessary to support every child’s needs.

What are the benefits of UDL?
How is UDL implemented?
What materials can be found in a UDL friendly writing center?
Assorted paper (lined, plain, colored)
Markers, crayons, pencils, pens
Letter stamps and washable ink pads
Letter cut outs with different textured backgrounds (Children can trace these with their fingers!)
Sight words
Cards for compound word building
A matching game for letters and their sounds
Electronic letter board (When pushed will say letter name and it's sound)
Magnet board and letters
Old magazines
Dry erase board and markers
ABC Slime Game

ABC Slime Game
Have them dig for specific letters, spell words, or match letter sounds to pictures. For example, a card could have a picture of a ball on it and they would need to find the letter B.
You will need:
2 cups of clear school glue
2 cups of very warm water
1 teaspoon of borax
1 & 1/3cups of very warm water
Alphabet letters

1. In a bowl mix 2 cups of clear school glue with two cups of very warm water and stir well.

2. Add the alphabet letters

3. In a separate bowl mix one teaspoon of borax with 1 and 1/3 cups of very warm water and stir well.

4. Once the borax is dissolved, combine the two bowls together and begin to mix with your hands. The slime will immediately begin to form.

Sandpaper Letters
Provide envelopes in your writing center so students can write each other letters. You can even provide stickers that the kids can use as stamps. Once finished we’ll “send” the letter to the recipients cubby!
Mailbox Writing
Practice, Practice, Practice!
Building a Writing Center using UDL
It helps to remember the 5 senses when choosing materials in order to help engage all types of learners and their varying ability levels.
Tip 1
When choosing materials for a center keep in mind the three multiple means categories: representation, action/expression, and engagement.
Tip 2
While this writing center offers multiple methods of writing practice for students to engage in, it's important to keeping in mind any other accommodations that would benefit a specific student.
For Example:
If you have a student in your class with poor fine motor skills you should include a variety of writing utensils with varying thinness. This will make holding a pencil easier and allows them to participate in the writing center freely.
