Fab 5 for Writing! Anchor Charts and Student Rubric

My sweet friend and co-worker asked if I would put together a kid-friendly rubric for writing.  Seeing as today is her birthday (Happy birthday, Beth!) I made it a priority to get this done this evening.

I've been using my "Fab 5" model for years but have never thought to pair it with a rubric that the students can use as a checklist as they are writing.  I can't wait to try it out this week!

 You can get the posters and rubric (HERE).  I'd love to hear what you think.  :)


  1. These are wonderful! Thank you!

  2. Fantastic! My kinder-bears are busily building sentences. These will be perfect reminders for them and the rubrics will help parents learn how to help them, too.

  3. This looks awesome! The posters aren't overdone. The colors are great! It is very clear. Love, love, love!

  4. Thanks for sharing your posters! :) These are great! :)

  6. Each time I come back to look at this post, I fall more and more in love with this! I am allllllllllll in!!!

  7. Rubric and posters look great. I use something similar but one of my five is spell HFW/sight words correctly

  8. Love the checklist and posters! The checklist would be good for my students that don't pay attention to details.
