After constantly reminding students of the same conventions in their writing, I decided to create a visual rubric for my students to use.
These posters come in two colorful formats, traditional and neon, so that they will match and classroom decorations already in your classroom.
I suggest introducing one piece of the rubric at a time during a mini-lesson until all pieces have been explicitly taught. Students are then ready for their own rubric to use during writing. There is a horizontal and vertical writing paper included, but I also included rubrics that could be cut apart and attached to other paper. You can also laminate the single rubrics for repeated use with a marker.
If you are interested in setting goals for your students during writing, you could create a clip chart from the posters. Students could then clip a laundry clip on the piece of the rubric to mark their goal.
The preview will give you a complete glimpse at the product.
I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do, and I hope it helps your students find success in their writing!
