Okay before I tell you about my fabulous writing freebie, let me just tell you all that I FINALLY found a venue for my wedding and reception! Can I get an Amen???? AMEN! Can I get a Hallelujah??!! I didn’t think I was ever going to find one so I am SUPER excited! The wedding reception is going to be on the Langley AirForce Base (my dad is military) at their Ballroom, which over looks the water and is GORGEOUS! The wedding is going to be at the chapel on base which is also beautiful! The date has been set for June 22, 2013! I cannot wait!!!!!

So…let’s celebrate with a freebie!  Writing Workshop is my absolute favorite part of the day! I love to see the growth in the kid’s writing from the beginning of the year to the end! I’m sure many of you have witnessed the same thing! And it’s Ah-Mazing!

To keep track of where my students are in the writing process, we use a chart (similar to the Behavior clip chart).  Each student has a clip with his/her name on it and when we check in at the beginning of writing workshop to see where everyone is in their writing, I will move their clip to the correct process spot. When I taught first grade, I moved my student’s clips for them, but last year with my third graders, I allowed them to move their clip on their own whenever they moved along in the writing process.

Next year I’ll be teaching 2nd (this will be my first year in 2nd) so I haven’t decided if I will allow the kids to move their own clip whenever they move in the writing process, or if I will move it for them at the check-in. Any ideas???

Here are my writing process posters!

You can grab these at my TPT Store or my Teachers Notebook Store.  🙂

I’m not sure how to make it so that you can click on the picture and it will take you to the link. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!!!
