This is a sheet that contains persuasive sentence starters. Cut the sentence starters our and give to children to use while writing their persuasive sentence, or paragraph, depending on the grade level. You could use these to show how persuasive writing differs from other types of writing, and the clues that we look for in writing to tell the type of text it is.
Individual triggers chart to use with students. Numbered 1-5 from bottom (happy) to top (angry) with simple statements, symbol style image support and space for writing possible triggers. A4 size but could be resized if necessary. The two versions are identical except for the skin tone used on the images
Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types. Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!
Working wall - The wall should exemplify the writing process from the 'reading as a writer' stage to the 'nearly finished' stage. Final presentations can be displayed in public areas of the school or in anthologies, portfolios or folders. The wall represents a workshop approach to writing - where the 'tools of the trade' are accessible, and added to, as the process develops. It is a good idea to allow children to make contributions to the wall; post-it notes are an ideal resource for this.
