This product can be used as a handout for the students to keep in their writing folder as a reference, or you can create a writing privacy folder. (see picture in preview)
I like using the writing privacy folder because it helps students focus on their writing and not others. Putting it together is also a great beginning of the year activity.
The handout includes:
Transition words list
Pictures of Prepositions
Other words for Said
6 traits writing expectations
Examples of comma usage
A list of what makes a complete sentence.
Examples of Parts of speech
A list of what kind of words to capitalize
Students usually have a lot of questions when they first begin writing. This tool can eliminate some of the questions and let you focus on the more important questions. It can also help you direct students in the right way when revising, instead of doing it for them.
