This is a small writing clip chart set that is great for the primary grades (Kindergarten & 1st).
This resource now includes 5 styles of clip charts:
- Colorful Chevron
- White Wood
- Gray squiggles
- Black & White
There are two boxes (goals) on each pages of the file and these are the writing goals on each box of the clip chart:
*A top header box- My Writing Goal
*I can write more than 1 page. (great for Caulkins)
*I put spaces between my words.
*I stretch the sounds in the word.
*I add more details.
*I start with a capital letter and write the rest in lowercase.
*I add punctuation at the end.
*I write nice and neat.
*I add details to my picture.
*I write my sight words correctly.
Each goal on the chart also has a picture or sentence below to provide a visual for students.
I write each child's name on a clip and when they conference with me once a week they move their clip to where they want their new goal to be. This can also be used on a magnetic board (using magnets on the back of the chart) and use magnets for the students names or student numbers.
This is a great visual for students, yourself, and also for other staff or administration to see that you are having your students set goals. I use this chart daily in my classroom and have seen great results with students taking more ownership with their writing and knowing what they are working on improving. I can go up to any of my kids and ask what their individual writing goal is and they can tell me! In previous years my kids struggled to do this.
