This is part of the free editing set from First Grade Wow. For kindergarten, I use it to show what they can do (smiley face in the check box) and what their newest personal challenge is (I highlight the check box). They keep it in their writing folders. It helps differentiate learning and gives each student focus. There are many other useful pages in the packet, too. All free!
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.
This is a great chart to use during writing instruction. It maps out the important things that all writing needs to have in a clear and concise manner (it could use a little color though!). This chart could help save the teacher from having to verbally remind students or mark on homework when grading for written work. Maggie Gomberg.
