Revving Up Writing

Today I am linking up with my Reading Crew to share strategies for revving up writing.  I compiled various anchor charts to assist with writers in Kindergarten-Second Grade.

Many times I would hear students say they don't know what to write about.  This year I had students create their own heart map at the beginning of the school year.  First off, it served as a resource when students needed to start a new writing piece.  I also used it as a way to get to know my students and their interests.  Students kept their heart map in their writing folder the entire year.
If you know who made this, let me know so I can give credit

I have seen this chart mostly in Kindergarten and First Grade classrooms, but it could be adapted for other grades.  This serves as feedback for students as well as helping students set writing goals.

I used this anchor chart in Kindergarten.  This anchor chart serves as a model for student illustrations.

I used this anchor chart in 2nd grade.  The stoplight is a great visual for students.  

I will do another post soon with anchor charts specifically for narrative, informational, and opinion writing.
