Product Updated: 8-2-14. Tools for Writing Workshop: I have received zillions of compliments from teachers and administrators from schools all over my district. I can’t take credit for the idea. I’ve seen this idea on Pinterest and all over the internet. I first made a set for summer school last year and it was a hit. Everyone loved them. I taught 3rd & 4th for summer school so I have a couple of pages that have different versions due to my grade assignment this year for 2nd grade. I tweaked a couple pages for primary but kept the old ones. They were too cute!
At “Meet the Teacher” a.k.a. Open House I had them on desks. They really spiced up the room.
Use as a personal desk reference or in centers for use as a writing center or literacy center.
Simply put two file folders together, print and paste!
