Product Description
Every writer needs a working, helpful notebook. Every writer has questions. Every writer needs reinforcement from lessons. These Reference Sheets for notebooks can meet all of these needs. The information within this resource is aligned with CCSS!

Reference Sheets included:
- Brainstorming formats
- Hooks/Leads
- Conclusions
- Onomatopoeia
- Figurative Language
- What gets a capital letter?
- Describing Words/Adjectives
- Show, Don't Tell
- Transition Words
- Writing Checklist

After teaching a lesson on writer’s craft, guide students in adding the appropriate reference sheet to their writer’s notebooks. These easy-to-read reference sheets can help students self-monitor their writing as well as add some interest and spice to their independent writing. These sheets can also help students develop independence as they write; they can check the references themselves for help before seeking an adult.

These were created with 4th graders in mind, but they can certainly be used in almost any grade level that receives writing instruction. Elementary students will enjoy the designs and layouts which are easy to navigate, and middle schoolers will appreciate the brevity of the information.

Some ideas for use:
- You may wish to create an index with your students so they can find the sheet they need.
- Print in landscape format. Do not print double sided if you are going to glue them into notebooks.
- Model using these sheets during the writing process.
- Create anchor charts for each sheet with similar shapes and patterns, so students can connect classroom materials with independent learning.
- Students can create a stapled booklet with these sheets to put into writing folders if you don’t use notebooks.
- These are extra fun when printed on brightly colored paper!
