This wonderful writing packet includes everything you need to document your students writing for the entire year. At the end of every month you should brainstorm with your students and have them complete the assessment for that month. Use the rubric to grade it. You can keep a monthly writing bulletin board. You should staple each child's paper to the board. When the next month is completed, only staple the top of the paper above the previous one. Maintaining this board all year long will establish a place for students to see and check their writing progress. At the end of the year, pull those off the board and the students will have a portfolio to take home and keep. HAPPY WRITING!!!
