Product Description
Thank you SO MUCH for previewing this product! After trying countless different ways to organize my writer’s notebooks over the past several years, I’ve created this kid-friendly format that my students LOVE! Inside my students’ writer’s notebooks, we keep the first 20-30 pages blank (front and back – this would be 40-60 pages if you count the front side as page 1, and the back side as page 2, etc.) These blank pages are used as a resource that students refer back to when they are writing independently. This product will give you activities to use with your students that will fill these blank pages!
Activities included in this unit are:
Rules for Writer’s Workshop *Template and Blank Form to Fill-In
Student Notebook Expectations
Writing Activity: The Story of My Name
Instructions, Organizers, Examples, Sign for Display
Writing Activity: Memory Bags! *Explanation & Note for Bags

It’s always helpful to create your own writer’s notebook “sample” to use with your students. I've included sample pages to help you with this!
I hope you enjoy the way I’ve organized my notebooks!
