These writing cluster markers (adapted from the NSW Literacy Continuum) are designed to be cut up and the appropriate cluster glued into the front of a writing book. (This resource includes writing clusters 9-12).
Written in kidspeak they are kid friendly and give students a goal to work towards. I like to highlight a marker and when students can show me they are competent I initial and then highlight a new marker for them to work towards. This allows for students to have direction and ownership over their own writing while providing a easily managed system for teachers to manage writing goals!
