Greetings friends! I created this 5 Star Writing page for my students as a self accountability piece. Each morning after completing our morning work, my students write a story on the back of their paper. We usually take one minute to vote on the topic (camping, fishing, storms, etc. ) and I write six vocabulary words on the board to help them with spelling. The remainder of their writing must be word wall words or words they sound out on their own. Before turning in their work, I have them check their mini chart to make sure they have completed all stars of their writing. This has provided a great visual for this quick writing activity. During Writer’s Workshop, students get to choose what they write about. Morning work is teacher directed. They use the chart for both times. I have a larger poster on the front board and keep the smaller charts on our supply bench so students can access them at any time. I hope you this as much as I do!
