This writing resource gives you supplies to make a personal portfolio for each student to use during Quarter 1 of the school year.
I print a portfolio for each student to use. I have Friday be portfolio writing day. Students can write about a topic of their choice or one you have assigned. Rubrics are available so you can check off what the student is doing in their writing. During writing conferences the teacher and student can establish what the author is already consistently doing in their writing and highlight that and they can highlight areas that the student is ready to develop. Each week when the portfolio is assessed, add checks to the boxes to show their is evidence of that content in the student writing.
There are many writing page selections to choose from. This can help the teacher differentiate for each student. The teacher can use any of the paper types available to help students grow as a writer.
Also available in the portfolio are:
Glow and Grow Comment Sheet for Conferencing
Personal Word Wall Word Page
High Interest Words
I hope you enjoy using this writing resource with your students. This resource is available as part of the Yearlong Writing Bundle if you would like to purchase all 4 units at one time for a reduced price.
