Writing a Paragraph using a Traffic Light- The Entire Writing Process

If you are like me, you want/need to teach your students the writing
process; however, it seems like a very daunting task! I found the
traffic paragraph method and ran with it! I LOVED it and so did
my students. I haven't looked back. These are all activities tried in my classroom and have been effective. I place the posters in a line hanging from my wall. I place the student’s names on clothes pins to make it easy to see where they are at in the writing process.

This bundle has everything you need to create a traffic light paragraph with your students. You just supply the construction paper. Interactive Notebook Template your students are sure to love! Posters to guide instruction along the way! Mini-Posters included for easy cut and paste into a notebook! Rubric for easy grading. (Rubric for students and for the teacher!) Mini-Pages of the Writing a Paragraph pages for easy cut and paste into a notebook. You will love this for your writing!
