Writing 'Menu" Display

Hi gang! I mentioned in an earlier post that I had my eye on this from Lori Rosenberg
Well, I purchased it over the weekend, printed it and went straight out to my classroom on Saturday evening to set it up! This is a picture of my bulletin board

and a partial picture of my baskets underneath
I made number tags so that it would be easy for the kids to match up the item on the "writing Menu" with the basket that contains the appropriate writing template. I am introducing the menu items one at a item and showing how to match with the correct basket. So far, it has been a big hit! They love it!

Hope you all had a good day!

Lory-it must be a "Lory-Lori Thing!" You girls are talented. This looks amazing. Love the idea of the menu and allowing them to choose what they are feeling and run with it. So often we say, "write on this topic." We understand writers block and think we forget that the kids may have it too! Thanks for sharing!

I'm so excited about the numbers! I printed them today and will laminate them and hang them on Monday. I'll take some pictures when I'm done and give you a HUGE shout-out for coming up with this great idea! Thanks again!
