Writing Details

I have been working on writing materials to help my students, especially as we transition to the Common Core Standards this year, and decided to share what I am developing as my next blog post.  In the meantime while I was procrastinating getting things done around the house blog hopping this morning I came across this on Teaching Blog Addict:
Awesome Writing Tips Workshop

What great timing! So even though I am not finished yet, I will add what I have as it continues to develop. I have some home projects I need to finish, so I cannot sit down and complete this all at one time. Here is a picture of the cover of the writing notebook that will be at the writing center in our classroom. I designed the notebook using graphic designs by Lettering Delights. Click on the picture below for a better view.

The inside of the notebook will contain tools and visual aids for students to help them along the writing continuum, more specifically, helping them with the who, what, where, why, and when details. I will post more later as I am having some washing machine breakdown issues right now that I need to deal with. Stay tuned..............


  1. That cover is just too cute!

    And I have never procrastinated house chores while blog hopping! LOL That just shows we are true addicts. ☺

  2. Thanks, Tamara. I am now your newest follower at your site, Teaching with TLC. Thanks for all that you do to keep Teaching Blog Addict going. I have discovered many sites and useful ideas through TBA. What a blessing! I would love to share my cover for the writing notebook with others, but am new to the blogging world and trying to figure out copyright, etc. with the graphic designs I purchased.

  3. I found you on the 2nd grade blog linky party and I'm now a follower. I would love for you to check out my blog at

  4. Thanks Mrs. Shepherd! I am following your blog now as well. I love your pirate good listener poster. This will be my second year in second grade, and I am looking forward to sharing ideas, especially with other second grade teachers throughout the year. Happy Teaching!
