There are 9 educational writing posters, or anchor charts, to teach and explain the writing process to children.
An attractive, useful part of a Writing Center, Corner or Wall display, for all Elementary Grades.
These steps are the same, regardless of text type.
Skills include an Introductory Title plus;
1) Pre-writing 2) Drafting 3) Sharing 4) Revising 5) Clean Copying 6) Editing 7) Publishing 8) Self Assessing
I like using the posters because once the students are aware of the system and processes they know exactly what they are expected to do. They have secure knowledge of the expected steps and the support of reminders on the cards.
This information provide a common language for teachers and students to use about the writing and establishes a common vocabulary and understanding of what is expected.
They last step of self assessment helps students set goals for future tasks.
I laminate and display in my Writing Corner.
I give each child a tag to make a personal name badge which they attach to the poster they are working on. This makes it easy for me to monitor their progress. It helps me to know who and when I need for conferences, assistance etc.
I've also included the memory fans I use in conjunction with these posters. The fans offer a summarized version of the information on the posters, and serve as desktop reminders or reference resources for individual students. I usually print the fans and distribute for students to assemble. Making the fan and name badge are excellent first week activities.
You may like to add this to your Writing Corner too!
