Guaranteed to keep your students on the "WRITE" track all year, this TOP SELLING Year Long Writing Bundle is your ticket to Teacher Heaven!

Each set has been designed in a consistant format making it easy to track your students' growth throughout the year. Not to mention, one of the most attractive aspects of this resource is that it requires NO PREP on your part! I invite you to take a look to see what other teachers have to say about this life-saving writing resource!
♥MONTHLY WORD WORK CARDS:
These cards include adorable clipart from TPT’s most popular clip artists, and include thematic, seasonal, or holiday words that your students can use as a spelling reference. You may choose to place the words in your Word Work station for your students to do activities with or place in your Writing Center for students to use as a spelling reference. Simply laminate, hole punch, and place them on a ring or put them in a container. Another suggestion might be to display them on a word wall if you have the space in your writing center so that students can easily view.
You will find the following items included in this download:
These menus are intended to be printed, laminated, or inserted into a sheet protector, and placed in the writing center for students to access if they are at a loss of writing ideas. We sure don’t want our students spending 10 minutes of their writing time “THINKING” about what to write; therefore, these writing menus can ignite their thoughts.
♥ENGAGING WRITING PROMPTS:
These writing prompts will provide opportunities for your students to respond and write to seasonal, thematic, or personal experiences. These prompts are similar to those which your students might see on standardized tests as they respond and share personal narrative experiences. They are perfect for students of any age and can easily be used in whole group writing sessions if your students are older, and writing stations if your students are younger. (For a full description of each months' prompts, I encourage you to click on each month!)
A student friendly rubric for students to use in order to evaluate their writing samples. The rubric is in a “yes/no” format. Your students can simply check the boxes as they apply.
♥AUTHORS WITH AUTHORITY:
This is a great writing tool for students to keep in the front of their writing journal or in their binder! It is full of friendly writing tips that students often misuse. As the year unfolds, you can individualize the scaffolding of these pointers…fewer skills for students below grade level, and additional skills for students on or above grade level. These guidelines can be introduced based on the developmental age of your students or ability level.
Some ideas for you, the teacher, that will allow you to keep your sanity while managing your writing station. An attractive and well stocked writing station is a key component that will create an inviting atmosphere for your students.
✎ Make sure all materials are available and easily accessible for the
students. The idea is that once the students arrive at the station,
they do not leave.
✎ Keep a container of sharpened pencils for students to use while at
the writing station.
✎ Make sure extra erasers are available.
✎ Provide a container of crayons/markers for the students to use
when illustrating while they are at the writing center.
✎ Have a designated place for students to place their writing journals
or unfinished work.
✎ Have a designated folder for students to place finished work.
You will also notice that the borders for each month will change. These borders will allow you to pinpoint the time of the year your students’ wrote so that you can observe their growth throughout the year. For example, you will know that writings with the pencil border was written in September, pumpkin border in October, turkey border in November, Santa border in December, etc.
