PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please view the "Preview" ↑ file to see all that is included in this kit!

This kit includes:
✔ A "What Can I Write About?" Writing Topic Chart with 20 topics
✔ A Word Bank “Brainstorming” Page for each topic (20 pages)
✔ An “Adjectives” Anchor Chart

The writing topic chart can be used to pick a topic to write about. When a topic is chosen (either by students or teacher's choice), the coordinating word bank/brainstorming page is used for pre-writing instruction. I gather students to the carpet and we discuss the topic they will be writing about. We brainstorm words that we might use when writing about this topic and I list them on the brainstorming/word bank page as students tell them to me. I either do this under the document camera or on the actual page in front of the class and then project it from the document camera for students to see and use when they go back to their seats to write. An adjectives anchor chart is also included to introduce the concept of adjectives/describing words.

I have found the word bank/brainstorming activity to be a great motivator for student writing. Students are much more engaged in their writing when they have ownership in the topic by helping to brainstorm the words for the word bank.

*When finished, I save the completed word bank pages and put them in a binder with the writing topic chart for students to use throughout the year at our Writing Center.
