Writing Process Posters (+Writing Traits)

Here is an item you can buy at my store!  Don’t forget to follow me to have access to new items, product updates, and store sales and discounts!

These posters are a combination of the writing process and the traits or writing.  They can be used in your classroom to visually demonstrate the writing process.  Each stage is clearly defined with tips and ideas to help students as they write.

Writing Process Steps:  Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, & Publishing

Writing Traits (embedded into the writing process): Ideas, Organization, Sentence Fluency, Word Choice, Voice, Conventions, & Presentation

To use:  In my classroom, I typically display these posters in a circle, a representation that the writing process is never complete.  Once you have finished (publishing), you get to begin a new piece of writing!

Following the full-size posters is a smaller set (4 posters to a page).  You can print these out on card stock and laminate them for students.  As each student works through the process, he or she can have a copy of the card to make sure they are completing each step before moving on to the next one.

The final set can be printed out and used by a single or pair of students.  Students can check off the different things they have done in their writing and bring it to the teacher for review before moving on to the next stage.  There is a place for a partner’s name as well, to assist with peer editing.  This final set is also available in grayscale to make it easier to copy for students.

Please add a comment to share ways you can use these in your classroom!
