I finally introduced our Writing Buddies today! I designed them to work together with our personal writing goals. I wrote about that HERE.
These little cards simply function as a reminder to my students of what they should be focusing on during their writing. Having these little buddies sitting right on the students' desks creates some accountability that the goal chart doesn't. When a student tells me their writing is finished I ask them to check in with their Writing Buddy before packing up. Did they remember to use capitals? punctuation? This is a great way to self-check!
They are simply printed on card stock, laminated and clipped on the bottom with a binder clip. When the metal grips of the binder clip are removed you're left with a perfect stand so the buddies don't get lost in a pile of papers! Awesome!
I would LOVE to give a set of Writing Buddies away this weekend! If you're interested in a copy, leave me a message below explaining how you would use them in your own classroom!
HERE. Thanks, Erin! These are Awesome!
