Writing Tools: Writing Tools Bundle Including 4 products
#1. Editing and Revising Task Cards
Are you tired of hearing "I'm DONE" only to find spelling errors, no periods, sentences without capitals and a host of other issues even after you have told students to edit and revise? Editing and revising are just hard for kids! These cards break down each step for your students and kids LOVE using them. There are 22 cards in all and a recording checklist.
#2. Common Core Writing Posters
This packet contains 29 FUN and colorful posters, each detailing a specific component related to writing genres. These can be used to jumpstart your mini lessons as you target specific components of each genre, for example, adding sparkle or stretching out a small moment during personal narrative writing, or backing up an opinion piece with 3 reasons. They can also serve as great visuals for your students when hung in your classroom during each unit.
I have separated narratives into 2 sections, personal narratives, and realistic fiction. If you have purchased any of my writing units, you may see ideas that are familiar as many of my writing units have similar posters.
Personal Narratives-8 writing posters
Nonfiction Writing- 6 writing posters
Opinion Writing- 7 writing posters
Realistic fiction- 8 writing posters
I hope you find it fun and useful, and that your writers feel inspired!
