Writing Process Clip Chart

Well... here goes nothing.  This is my first blog post!  I am so excited, nervous, anxious, etc.

Last week we started our third writing piece of the year, a letter to Santa.  The kids have to give Santa three reasons why they deserve the gift they want instead of explaining why they want the gift.  This has proven to be more difficult than I originally anticipated.

We don't have "Writer's Workshop" time built into our day so when we do formal pieces I find myself moving my schedule around to make my own time.  I have found it to be difficult to keep track of who I still need to meet with without them all writing on the Promethean Board when they are done.  This can become distracting and somewhat chaotic for my kids.  I went all over TPT to find a writing process clip chart that I liked in hopes of making my life a little easier... no such luck.  There were some REALLY great options, but I am a little OCD about what I put on my walls.  Ok... maybe not "a little."  Long story short is you can thank my OCD for this product.

Just print, laminate, and connect together.  You can use clothespins with the students' names or numbers on them so they can track their progress throughout the process.  Personally, I like to use numbers so I am able to use them again next year.  If I can avoid making something small from year to year I do at all costs. 

Here are some more pictures of the product.  I am a Melonheadz fanatic and just a little bit obsessed with anything bright or chevron.  

I hope you enjoy the product.  Make sure to leave a positive review if you're satisfied.
