I love using the traffic light method to teach my beginning writing students the basics of writing. Using this method allows me to introduce some fundamental skills such as indenting the first line of a paragraph, using transition words, and incorporating strong points and supporting details into writing. I have found that I can use this method for all types of writing--narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive. I have used this method to teach writing to both first and second grade students.
UPDATE: Now also includes Paragraph Planning Pages and Lined Writing Page With Drawing Space! (These additions can also be purchased separately.)
