Writing folders are great for organizing student ideas and writing samples. Use this packet of writing resources to organize your students' writing folders. Included are 4 full page interlined writing papers for primary students, and 2 blank mini-booklets for students to create their own books again and again. There are two full-color pages of instructions and ideas for using these booklet blackline masters.
Two color and two blackline writing folder covers are included, one with a boy and one with a girl.
The word banks can help guide some of your writing lessons as you brainstorm words that the students can add to their own pages. Then the students can use their personal word banks to help them during independent writing.
Several other student resources include a list of "no-excuse" spelling words, a great writers list, silly story ideas, spelling ideas and story planning pages.
For Canadian buyers, I have included an appendix which contains the variations for October and November (Thanksgiving is in October in Canada, as compared to in November in the U.S.).
