This visual will allow students to incorporate reading strategies within their writing. I use the posters within the document to serve as a large visual for my students. I have a pencil visual that is about 8 feet long made out of yellow construction paper. The mini visuals are taped to writing folders and/or desks. The lined paper with the mini writing checklist is part of their daily journal writing.
-GO (capital letters start sentences, proper nouns)
-Finger (finger spacing)
-Stretchy Snake (stretch out the sounds in words)
-Lips the Fish (make the first sound match)
