Do you know that gratifying feeling of crossing off a task on your list of "Things to Do?" Or maybe you are like me and you ADD tasks to the list after you have already completed them simply so you can cross them off and see all that you have accomplished?!
This Graphic Organizer allows students to work through the writing process with a few choices along the way and monitor the tasks.
Once my 5th graders are somewhat comfortable with each stage of the writing process, I send this home every other week as a week-long homework assignment. Sometimes the topic is free choice, other times I will give them a prompt having to do with Science, Social Studies or even our Read Aloud.
You can use this graphic organizer for any genre of writing!
This is a staple in my room!
