Great writings start with great lists!See scrolling page samples in the preview to see list-making pages that make planning, drafting, revising and editing easy for students.TOP 10 Bell Ringers and Prewriting Collections for Writers' Notebooks:

Students love reading and generating Top 10 Lists – especially when they’re working in pairs or small groups.

But more importantly, Top 10 Lists serve double duty as Prewriting Collections.

So if your students hate prewriting, disguise the task as a Top Ten List Generator and watch their resistance to the most neglected part of the writing process melt away.

Distribute Top Ten Lists to several small groups. Then share completed lists so that classmates can compare ideas and make adjustments to their own lists.

All of the Top 10 lessons may be used in presentation mode to conduct whole class lessons.

You’ll receive lessons along with 50 Top 10 List Templates including:

10 Top Ten Character Trait Lists
10 Top Ten Opinion Lists
10 Top Ten Reference Lists
10 Top Ten Show Don’t Tell Lists
10 Top Ten Group Journal Covers Notebooks and 10 Inserts for Binders

Bonuses: 9 generic and customizable Top Ten Templates
10 8 x10 cartoon display cards

These lists are perfect for writing centers, Writers' Notebooks,whole class lessons, small group instruction, sub plans and more!
