I was constantly reminding students to remember capital letters, punctuation, to spell sight words properly, and more while they were writing! I felt like I needed an easy button for it! If you have felt that way, here is your easy button!
Each writing skill included fits into one color of the rainbow (and the clouds!). Simply teach each sentence skill the way you like to teach it. (Check out my Punctuation Pals for one example of how to teach punctuation!) Include lesson on pre-made poster sheets.
As you teach each color/skill, point it out to students on their Rainbow Reminder mini charts. Now, when they write sentences, require them to review the Rainbow Reminders before saying they are "Done!" If you notice they have missed reviewing a color's expectations, simply say the color and they will know what to look closely for in their writing pieces.
