Throwback Thursday- Writer’s Workshop

Happy Thursday!
Today I’m linking up with super-cute Cara from The First Grade Parade for an old school  linky party…Throwback Thursday! 
It is a tribute old blog posts. :)
So I thought I would revisit my most popular TPT product and still one of my favorite classroom tools- Writer’s Workshop Folders! 
I STILL use my original folders from three years ago.  
Laminated, they have held up really well!  
(They are kept in a basket … NOT in their desks!) 
I write the kiddos names on the front with a Sharpie, then
at the end of the year I take it off with a Magic Eraser sponge. 
(Which I just did yesterday!)

Hello everyone in blog land!  I have been busy gearing up for school.  I go back next week!  It is so hard to believe that my summer is almost over!

My school is really pushing Writer’s Workshop this year, so I decided to make some 4-pocket folders for my kiddos.  I think I am on a first name basis with the folks @ Staples because I really took advantage of their 1 cent folder deal!

Mine are fashioned from folders my friend Andrea uses in her classroom. They look like this:

They are basically 2 folders stapled together to make 4 pockets.  I also made a cover and labels for the pockets.  I think I might go ahead and laminate the outside one for durability.  I also included some 6 trait info, as well as revising and editing info.

The entire file has been uploaded to my TPT store, and includes label templates for Prewriting, Rough Draft, Revising, Editing, Writing Ideas, and Handouts so you can customize the pockets to fit your needs.

Happy writing!!

Stay up to date!

    I was thinking about buying your TPT Writing Folders, but can you tell me how you stapled the folders together? Is there a trick to this?
