Small Writing Rainbow Symbols


What are the Small Writing Rainbow Symbols?

The Small Writing Rainbow Symbols are a set of brightly coloured visuals that mirror the writing lenses found on Jane Considine’s Writing Rainbow.

They are a perfect prompt to assist ‘Write Stuff’ teachers when modelling writing through ‘The Three Zones of Writing’.

This full set of Small Writing Rainbow symbols include visuals for:

The ideas of writing: FANTASTICs

The grammar of writing: GRAMMARISTICs

The techniques of writing: BOOMTASTICs

By using these writing lenses pupils will become more confident on the range and repertoire of aspects to showcase in their independent writing.  This approach supports a systems view to teaching writing that can be applied to any text, novel, picture book or film.

Each visual symbol is 9cm in diameter. There are 2 complete sets of Writing Rainbow symbols in this pack. (54 symbols in total)
