    Hello all,

    I'm thinking of starting to use a binder for writing. The binder can contain useful reference material, drafts, completed writing samples, word lists, etc. Does anyone use these and how so? Your responses are greatly appreciated.

    I have a reference binder for writing. I keep materials that they need...how to write a formal writing piece, how to use the 4 square organizer, what are the six traits, interesting hooks and wrap ups, lists of transitions, etc.

    I have my students keep their rough drafts in a spiral notebook though. I thought about moving them to the binder, but I didn't want to buy that many page protectors.

    binders for writing

    Our school requires that we use binders for writing and keeping word lists, etc. I have found that too often my 2nd graders accidentally tear the holes so many papers are now hanging out of the binders. So far I'm not really a fan of using binders for 2nd graders. I prefer composition books or even a spiral notebook.

    Thank you, I used the binders this school year and had a good turn out. The kids really enjoy using them. Do you create your own materials?i.e hooks and wrap ups, traits

    I didn't create most things...I found the majority of them online and in curriculum books.
