Writing Conference Labels - Mrs. B's First Grade

Writing Conference Labels

I am SO excited that my friends Jennifer from A Dab of Glue will Do and Sara from Sara J Creations have brought back Winner Wednesday! It is one of my favorite link ups. I love looking at the other awesome products from Teacher Bloggers!

Winner Wednesday is the first Wednesday of every month. Bloggers pick one product from their stores, explain all about it, and then you can enter to win it! To enter, all you do is submit your name. Easy peasy!
This week I would love to introduce you to my writing labels! I can not believe I haven't blogged about these before. I couldn't pick which type of writing to give away, so I am giving away all three in my bundle! 

These labels are perfect to use when conferring with students. Have you ever given a student a suggestion for their writing just to walk away and have them completely forget what you said?! These solve the problem! 

Each pack has several labels that are perfect for instructing your young writers with their writing. The product is a WORD document so that you can easily print them out on sticky label sheets. If you do not have label sheets, you can print them on a piece of regular paper and cut them out!
I like to start out my writing conferences by asking the writer "how's it going?" I have the writer read me what they have written so far and then we talk about strengths and what they could improve on. As you are conferring with your writers, you can pay attention to important writing components such as:
Structure 
Language
Need for Elaboration
Generation of Ideas 
Drafting
Revision
Editing
Most likely one of these areas will stand out to you and you will recognize an area where your writer can grow. Each of my writing label sheets includes some tips on this for you to make this easier. Once you have identifeid that area, you can explain the label you are leaving the writer with and stick it on their sheet. That way the writer will have a reminder as to what to work on after your conference. It will also serve as a reminder to you when you meet with the writer again!
Some stickies in action!
Want to try these out in your classroom? Click the picture below to be taken straight to them in my Teachers pay Teachers store. You can also enter the Rafflecopter to win the bundle! 
How do you confer with writers in your classroom? I would love to hear your tricks!

  1. Sarah - this is genius!!! It makes conferring with writing so much easier. Not only is it a great reminder for the students but it is great for the teacher to look back quickly and remember what you were focusing on. Such a great idea! Thanks for linking up this month!
