Posters & Labels-first grade
BUNDLE Opinion Writing for First Grade Writers! Mini-Posters & Labels
As a teacher of writing, I found that because kids are developing at different stages and have differing needs, the writing process needed to be broken down for some more than others. With that being said, I have adapted writing goals that cover content and conventions/mechanics of writing. This product contains color &; black and white labels, mini color posters and editable student name labels. These goals strongly align with Lucy Calkins’ Units of Study, Unit 3 Opinion Writing for First Grade and CCSS. This unit teaches kids how to convince others to think, feel or act the way they do through persuasion techniques. I do love the Units of Study program! You can find it HERE
These writing goals have also been made into mini posters that measure 5.5 X 8.5 (landscape) and there are two to a page. A customer of mine had encouraged me to turn Narrative Writing Labels for K-1 into mini posters that she could hang on a bulletin board. From there she differentiates the needs of her students by adding their name next to the goal they are working on. Included in this product are editable labels to add your kids’ names. I would suggest making a sheet of labels for each child with their name. This way the kids could be working on more than one goal at a time.
Prior to writing and after my mini-lesson, I have the kids read over their goals. At the close of the workshop, they once again read over their goals to reinforce what they are working on and then the process starts again at the next workshop. I found that they are extremely effective at having the kids evaluate and reflect on their writing throughout the process, not just on the final product. Hopefully, you will find that as the rigors of the Common Core abound, these will assist you and your students in meeting those high standards.
Goals are written in first person and are as follows:
-write an opinion and tell likes/dislikes
-write a beginning and name a topic or text and give my opinion
-write an ending
-write a part that gets attention
-use knowledge of word parts to spell words
-use labels and words to give details
-end every sentence with punctuation
-write at least 1 reason
-use the word wall to help with spelling
-write lots of reasons
-add transitions to give more information
-use various spelling strategies
-use sparkly words
-defend my reasons
-have a conclusion
-have an introduction
-give a rating
-have a sneak peek
-work with a partner to revise
With the posters, you are a bonus of two additional goals not on the labels. The posters are also more descriptive than the labels and make a nice complement to the labels.
