This product can be used in a number of ways at any time during the school year, and at any time during your writing instruction.
This resource includes:
Colorful set of slides in pdf format for projection OR printing for classroom display
Colorful bookmarks (3 to a page) as reminders
An 8.5 x 11 sheet with color as well, and some additional detail.
All of the items will print OK in grayscale.
The tips are:
Read it aloud. Reading aloud is MAGIC!
Check your spelling. Every word!
Check your paragraphing. Your reader will thank you!
Add detail in support of your ideas, descriptions, or facts.
Mix up longer and shorter sentences.
Vary sentence beginnings (Included are 4 suggestions for how to)
Improve word choice (No "baby words"!)
I use these tips as a foundation for individual lessons, too, focusing on a particular skill such as word choice. You could display just one of the tips on your screen, and have all students work on that particular skill, or group students according to the skill they are working on.
I hope these posters will brighten up your classroom, and get your students thinking about writing revision in an easy way.
