This chart was created to help students get ideas for what they wanted to write. The topics chosen were based on common writing topics that I saw in the classroom. It allows them to think about what they would like to write about, while giving beginning writers key words to copy. This chart has been used in my personal classroom for 2 years and has been successful.
This chart can be minimized when printing to put in personal writing notebooks, or enlarged in poster size and hung in the classroom.
