Awesome descriptions of writing emotions


*I'm not sure where I'd fit all of these anchor charts, but they are great ideas for teaching writing!


Anchor chart that gives students sentences that provokes feelings about their books. What they liked, didn't like, what they weren't sure about and how they felt after reading.


Paragraph writing - green strip for topic sentence, yellow for supporting detail sentences, and red for closing sentence. LOVE this!


Roots... big in 5th grade Word Study. Plus, this blog has lots of other great anchor charts and organization ideas.


Common Core is all about evidence!! Standard One for all grades is all about showing the evidence!! This is a great Anchor Chart for Textual Evidence Sentence Starters

This could be a fun mini-lesson in showing and not telling! Provide your developing writers with the five sentences on the left. Do one together, and have them write sentences with the rest that really show their emotion!

Great ideas for interactive reading notebooks. I think this could be modified for younger children. Teaching My Friends!: My Reading Notebooks
