If you are familiar with Step-Up-To Writing format, then you will recognize this stop light method for writing a paragraph! My students have all done SO well with this since we implemented it a few years ago. I use this with my First Graders, but it could easily be used for 2nd and even 3rd graders!
This packet includes:
Directions for the Stop Light Method
Stop Light Paragraph Posters
Two Stop-Light Level example paragraphs
Blank Stop Light Writing page with color coded marks for reminders – You can use this to add your own topics or allow students to choose the topics.
10 different writing topics with Paragraph Planning (mapping) pages
Some sample topics include:
My favorite restaurant is…
When I am a grown-up…
I like/don’t like bugs…
8 additional SEASONAL topics with bubble map pages and decorative writing template pages
I hope you enjoy using this and find it helpful!
