This strategy guide explains the writing process and offers practical methods for applying it in your classroom to help students become proficient writers. In using the writing process, your students will be able to break writing into manageable chunks and focus on producing quality material.
I finally got around to updating my Writing Process posters. I included the traditional 5 steps: Prewrite, Draft, Revise, Edit, and Publish.

The kids love to use them and it is a great way for them to realize they left out a word or two or three I also switched over from traditional editing marks to writing the capital in green crayon and the ending mark in red crayon.

The students LOVE to share but there is never enough time for everyone. Again, maybe 3 magnets or clips from this poster could be picked at random.
Do you stick with the original 5 or use a variation? Maybe a little mix and match? Your comment can be about this post, telling me you pinned this, that you are now following my TpT store, whatever you'd like.
