Writing Goals - clip chart display --LOVE THIS, will definitely hang this up in my classroom. Students can have a weekly goal to work towards and then turn in their weekly work to prove to the teacher that they achieved their goal!
Word boxes: If a student doesn't know how to spell a word, they check the card in the box. If it's not there, they bring the card to me, we spell it together, and then the card goes back in its spot when they're done. Promotes independent writers!
