Revising vs. Editing - I like the idea of having a visual showing that revising and editing overlap.

I often see writers confusing editing with rewriting/revising. Reference this Venn diagram to help distinguish the two.
This would be a great poster for 4th and 5th grade classrooms! It can help students continually understand the difference between editing and revising and what similarities they have as well! Great resource for the classroom walls!

5th grade writing
I love Oh Boy 4th Grade so much that I don't even mind, as Farley puts it, "the lack of sentence structure!" I read her blog tonight and felt compelled to join the "Currently" linky party: I also want to share some back-to-school printables for all you hardworking writing teachers out there! They've been uploaded to my TpT Store, but I have yet to post them to the blog! I'm proud of this one: Revising vs. Editing. I've learned that acknowledging them as two different steps of the writing process really is important if you want your students' writing to grow. Revising is typically more challenging for young writers since it can be so vague at first, but it's so worth all the hard work! I will board that soapbox another day. Anyway, we have a couple chants that go along with this printable: Teacher: "Revising is..." Students: "...making it SOUND better!" *make a hearing gesture* and Teacher: "Editing is..." Students: "Making it LOOK better!" *make hand binoculars* Then, I'll throw examples at them. I'll ask, "If I read my first draft aloud to you, would you be able to hear that the word "august" needs to be capitalized?" etc. The possibilities are endless... Download it HERE! My other printable is a FREEBIE that will help ease the pain when your students hear the tragic news: "Said is DEAD!" We had so much fun with this motto/theme last year, and I can't wait to do it all over again with our new group! Download it for free HERE! I hope I've given you a little inspiration for a brand new school year! May your workroom be stocked and your coffee be caffeinated!
The former teacher in me can’t help but love the idea of using foldables in the classroom. After I discovered them, I just had to find a way to incorporate a few into my school counseling program. This is my first attempt, and I was excited to see it all come together. I’ll be sharing another one soon, so come back! I’d love to hear from you regarding test

Writing process steps. A good way to measure class progress and to identify which students are ready for editing conferences, etc. AND they can see that writing a research paper (or a narrative, etc) is not a one-step process. Although, I might change "draw a picture" to say "illustrate" instead.

Hello and welcome! Here you'll find a selection of my free, printable, guided journal pages for kids. Just like my original guided journal pages these pages combine fill-in-the-blank journal prompts with unconventional to-do lists, game-show-inspired lightning rounds and oodles of hand-drawn doodles. There are also some key differences: I've made the lines a little thicker and the outer border wider for colouring, I've added a place for the child's name beside the date, I've reduced the number of prompts per page to make it easier to complete a page in one or a few sittings, I've simplified the prompts slightly to make them more suitable for younger journal keepers. In terms of age range, I'm thinking grades three to six. You are most welcome to click the link below the images to download each page. If you love these pages and would like to see more, I invite you to pop on over to my shop, where you'll find my guided journal starter kit for kids. These pages are for personal use only and are not to be used for any commercial purpose whatsoever. If you have any questions about the use of my pages, please check out my FAQ page or send me a quick email and I'll be delighted to answer them. Best wishes and happy journaling!

Here's a great idea for a paper plate foldable on latitude and longitude.

Latitude/longitude foldable (paper plate)
Great Paper Plate Foldable for Latitude & Longitude (could use in interactive notebook)
Some had mentioned they would like to see inside my social studies interactive notebook so I finally remembered to bring it home and snap some pictures. It is not as creative as my language arts one! I used some foldables from Dinah Zike, some I found online, and some great units from InspirEd Educators. This is my first year teaching social studies (in middle school, in my career, and in 6th grade). I teach in NC and our state will be implementing the Common Core starting next school (2012-2013). In addition, all of our other curriculums have changed to what they call Essential Standards. I was put on the Social Studies Essential Standards training team for our county. Needless to say, I was panicked and lost at the beginning of the school year. I started out with the five themes of geography and landforms and then moved to South America which was found in our old textbook while we read The Cay in language arts class. Since being put on the training team, the team was told after the first nine weeks that we were allowed encouraged to convert to the new essential standards curriculum. With that came a complete loss for me. I had no social studies materials to start with, but the change meant I had absolutely nothing, not even the old textbook. I headed to the Internet to search for materials, lessons, actually anything I could get my hands on and discovered InspirED Educators. InspirEd Educators was like this amazing find for me (and in no way am I affiliated or paid to promote their products)! They have several thematic units on ancient world history which is what our new essential standards is for 6th grade. These lessons contain a variety of hands on activities, primary and secondary sources, whole group/small group lessons, research projects, and collaborative projects just to name a few. So...long story short: my social studies notebooks started out more interactive but then became a place to glue all the lesson from InspirEd Educators as act as a textbook for social studies. Here are a few pictures to get started. The table of contents for my social studies interactive notebook. Five Themes of Geography flip book foldable. We took notes on each tab for that theme. Notice the capital/bold letters spell MR. HELP...this was our acronym to help remember the five themes (found on the Internet somewhere). One of the tabs from our Five Themes of Geography flip book foldable. Longitude and latitude foldable using a paper plate and then glued into our notebooks. Here is the paper plate foldable unfolded in our notebook.
