Writing Pin 1. This is a writing goals chart. This chart could be put up sometime in the beginning of the school year. As the year progresses and students reach these goals, they can put their names in the spaces.
Have the students make their writing "more colorful" by using paint strips. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Put the best word on the brightest part of the strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!"
