The writing process checklist can be laminated and used as a checklist so the student is always clear on what part of the writing process they are on when working on a piece!
In addition to the checklist, there is a page for students to jot down Wealthy Words to use when writing. (ie:penny word=good, nickel word=great, quarter word=wonderful, dollar word=spectacular)
Do your students always look for a different word to use other than "said"? the last page of this document includes a list of words for students to use instead of the word "said".
These tools can all be kept a pocket made by students in the front of their writing journals.
If a composition book is used, the Wealthy Words and Said List can be glued on pages in the journal.
