⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Deanna W. says, "I love this resource because it allows me to tailor my writing station to the needs of my classroom. I have used it as a bulletin board. I have also used it as a mobile station. Students are actively engaged in writing because they have the expectations and also ideas for writing."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Sarah B. "I saw this and I had to have it! I loved the way it looked and it actually addressed some things I vaguely wished my past writing stations/groups had, but I could never quite articulate it well enough in my mind to work out what it is I wanted to create. I think this is it! Thank you so much for creating this wonderful writing center!"
