Lines. A poster like this would go nicely in the writing center. You can also laminate it, and smear shaving cream on it. The children can trace the lines underneath. FUN!

Another great, easy resource with this phonics slider. Cheap to make and the children can make their own personal sliders. (picture only)

Name writing practice and practice with counting letters in your name. (letters versus words!) Free printable too!

Display this Whole Body Listening poster in your classroom for back to school, or distribute it as part of a welcome pack on the first day. http://ericabohrer.blogspot.com/2011/07/back-to-school-activities-free-sample.html

More ideas for supporting guided writing during small group instruction (and keeping a notebook of work)... like the idea of using the sticker dots to count sounds and then write letters.

I love this!!! Instead of "Writing Goals", I would make this "Writing Success!" and put the child's name up when they are caught having success with that writing skill (would only do 4: Caps, Finger Space, Punctuation, and neat Handwriting)
