The Ultimate Writing Office

I am thrilled to have finally finished a project I have been working on for a while. The Ultimate Writing Office! This is an interactive folder designed for students to use as an aid while they prewrite, draft, revise, edit, and publish. It also provides privacy since it is in itself a partition. I am going to use these during reading/writing workshop to build student enthusiasm and improve my students' writing craft.
Here it is in all its glory! Now for some views from some different angles.

View from the back.

View from the right side.

View from the left side.

Full view of the middle.

View from the front when it is shut.

I tried to incorporate a little bit of everything when it comes to the writing process in this office such as the steps of the writing process, types of writing, writing ideas, high frequency words, transition words, and more, but I really wanted to highlight word choice options for students to use when revising. Some of the posters I created for this were:

A Color Words Poster

Other Words For... Poster

And an Other Words for Said Poster

These word choice posters all go with the Time to Revise Poster

To check out this ultimate writing office and all that it contains, click HERE or on the picture below to be taken to my TPT store.

Can't wait to get these up and running in my classroom!
