I created these Writing posters for use in my own classroom! Refer to these posters as you work on a new type of writing each week. Writing examples, blank templates for modeling, and student printables are also included.
I created these posters for my own classroom after struggling to use an effective Focus Wall for years! In the past, I had a Focus Wall, but I never changed any of the posters to reflect what we were learning in the classroom. In other words, our "Back to School" narrative poster would still be up in December (or even May!). Yikes.
I wanted something I would actually USE and something that my kids could refer to, as well. Having an example poster for each type of writing, plus a blank template so that we could work on writing together has been a game changer! The topics are ready to go!
I needed something EASY. I didn’t want to have to look for a poster and/or wipe off and write a new learning target every single week. And I certainly didn’t want to insert something into a sleeve each time or hole punch something, either. Just keeping it real! ☺️ I transitioned to these phonics posters last year, and KEPT UP WITH IT. The secret? I printed all of the posters and then kept them together on the Focus Wall with a binder clip.
