Six great student-friendly descriptions of different types of writing.
This set highlights: story, list, recipe, letter, email, and card. Each sheet includes a definition, what that type of writing needs, and important phrases we use in these types of writing.
I use these in my first grade class every single day! Each type of writing has it's own folder. I place each of these sheets in a page protector with an example of that piece of writing. Then, the folder includes all the materials my students would need! We even have worked up to sending an email to our parents with our own classroom gmail address!
These sheets keep my students self-directed, on-task, and excited about writing!
