Allowing Students to Become Independent Writers

Let’s paint a picture. Its time to work on writing. Your students have mapped out their ideas using graphic organizers and now they are going to make their first draft. Slowly but surely a line begins to form wherever you go to help your students. Before you know it it is time for lunch and most of your students spent the class waiting for confirmation on spelling, grammar, or something else simple. 

Has this happened to you? Especially when working with a co-taught classroom many students have such a dependency on holding their hands thru the writing process. This is why, as a teacher, I dread writing assignments. To help my sanity this upcoming school year I went into problem solving mode and created a resource to help create independence in my young writers.

The Independent Writers Folder is a low prep way to give students independence when writing. In the folder the students will have the first 300 words on the FRY Word List in in alphabetical order, commonly used words by category, a working word wall to add words as the year goes on, cheat sheets for punctuation and capital letters, structure of a paragraph , and more!

Each page in the folder will allow your students to advocate for themselves during the writing process and will help them become independent and confident writers! Never waste precious class time again by helping students spell everyday words or correcting grammar errors!

Giving Students independence in the writing process will help them grow in their confidence and writing skills!
