One of my sweet readers Josie sent me these pictures. I love how she used the binding machine to assemble her Writing Workshop Folders.
She says she has used them for a few YEARS now and just uses a Magic Eraser sponge to change the kiddos names. BRILLIANT! You are a smartie, Josie!!
And speaking of writing… I recently realized that I never blogged about another one of my favorite tools for Writer’s Workshop — My Writing Placemat. It is a really simple chart that the students keep in their desks and can pull out when they need help with writing. The students can also take it to a spot around the room if needed. It contains word lists to increase vocabulary and improve word choice. There are several lists of adjectives as well as common words like months, numbers, and family. I also see them pulling them out during science and social studies, too. BONUS!!
