Writing centre. Samples of what students can work on include: Letter writing List making Story writing Start a Topic book (a book all about topic of student's choice) Comic strips Card making... All materials available for students at one location.
Writing Folder - Resource Tool for Aspiring Authors! As always it is great to have reminders up on the walls that students can refer to to see what writters do, why we write, and this nifty poster has ideas for writers. Its easy for young writers to get stuck and this is a fun way to inspire and give them some idea that they can write about.
I use this at my writing station for Daily 5. The kids love it! Roll a Story great for teaching how to make interesting elements in a story. Love this for those kids who are stuck on what to write about!
