Do you need a striking writing bulletin board set? Are you teaching your students about the traits of good writers? Do you want to set writing goals with your students? Then my V.O.I.C.E.S Traits of Good Writers Bulletin Board pack is the set for you!
I have created this set based on my interpretation of Ruth Culham's 6+1 Traits of Writing, the 2 Sister's Cafe, and Vicki Spandel's book: Creating Young Writers.
Included in the set are posters for each trait along with letters to spell VOICES. The trait posters are: Voice, Organization, Ideas, Conventions, Expanding Word Choice, and Sentence Fluency. Along with the anchor posters, I've included "I can" statements that represent mini-lessons and strategies for each trait. Much like the Cafe idea of adding strategies for each trait, this bulletin board set is designed to grow with your young writers throughout the year. As you use a rubric (also included) to score pieces, your students will learn to identify their own writing strengths and weaknesses. They can learn to set writing goals (printable included) and post their names under the trait they are working to improve.
I've also included a rubric, portfolio selection paper, writing data graph for student data notebooks, and "2 Stars and a Wish" goal setting paper.
This bulletin board pack has everything you need to anchor your students' learning with the traits of good writers and help them set goals for future writing success!
