I created this visual word wall and other supports for teaching a how-to unit in writers workshop. I work in an international school and teach many English language learners, and wanted something more to support them.
It can also be used to support students who need differentiated instruction, as well as reluctant writers who say, "But I don't know what to write about!"
You will find:
6 Category headers
40 how-to topic cards
60 action cards
30 adjective cards
30 cards related to crafts, cooking and sports
6 introduction sentence stems
9 transition cards
6 conclusion sentence stems
4 tiered touch-and-tell story boards for planning and organization
