is an acronym used to display the six traits
of writing and the writing skills students need to learn to become proficient writers.
VOICES is Writing's answer to the CAFE reading menu. As you can see on the preview, the six traits
are listed at the top of your display, forming "VOICES". Under each trait, you can put a definition of each writing skill that your class is working on.
This pack comes with 55
skills cards that you can display on your classroom's "VOICES" display board
. High quality graphics and clip art are included on each card to engage your students.
The "VOICES" writing traits include:
Excellent Word Choice
You may like to display all the skill cards at once or simply place them on the display board as you complete a focus lesson on the skill. The "VOICES" board and skill cards can be referred to during whole class writing lessons or student conferences.
Students can peg their name or place a name label next to the particular writing skill that they are working on. Once students believe that they have achieved their writing goal, they can schedule a writing conference with the teacher where they provide evidence of their achievement (see my VOICES Writing Goal Record Sheet Freebie in my store)
This product is sold as a PowerPoint
file so that you can edit and personalise the cards to suit your classroom's needs!
The VOICES headings and posters are included within this package for free!
The 'VOICES' display board and skill cards are a constant visual reminder for students to actively work towards the achievement of their writing goals.
It looks great and is easily visible from anywhere in the classroom.
