Have you seen these wonderful pencil visuals on Pintrest and other sites? I use this pencil visual with my Grade 5/6 students to help them develop a better understanding of the writing process. Write student names on clothes pins or attach them with ribbon to paper clips. When the students are finished one part of the writing process, they can move their pin or clip to the next part. Editing and revising are never the most popular jobs but students are well prepared to complete this task when they see that it is next. I noticed that this benefited all students, but especially my students with FAS and Autism. Add more routine to the writing process with this visual.
Included in this pdf are the cute pencil labels that I used for my pencil. Follow the picture as a guideline for how to assemble your pencil. All you will need is a large orange piece of paper, small pieces of pink and grey, as well as a black marker, glue, and these labels.
If you teach primary, consider using the same concept, but instead, use pictures to show students the writing process.
