Writing Workshop Clip Chart
The clip chart (pages 2 – 8) is ready to print, laminate, and post in your room. I use the tabs on pages 9 and 10 as student name tabs; I write the student’s name on the tab and tape or hot glue a paperclip to the back. It can then be easily attached to the chart to show which stage of the writing process a student is working in each day. Many elementary teachers use clothespins for this, but I suspect that my middle-school boys would be too tempted to pinch with those!
Writing Process Flipbook
The first version of the flipbook (pages 11 – 15) is a sample that contains my notes and ideas for completing the book as I use it in my classroom. It is likely that you use different resources and strategies in your class, so I recommend the blank flipbook (pages 16 – 20) for use with your students. I give my own students blank flipbook pages, and we brainstorm together as I record their ideas and mine on the interactive whiteboard with a projected copy of the page.
Each page has two copies of the flipbook, so you only need to copy half the number for your students and then cut the pages.
To assemble the flipbook, stack the pages with shortest (cover) on top and align the pages at the top so that all the steps of the writing process show at the bottom. Then staple at the top above the dashed line.
After completing the flipbook together, I have my students glue it into the inside front cover of their writing composition notebooks as a handy reference whenever they are working in our writer’s workshop.
