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.
