What are the Small Writing Rainbow Symbols?

The Small Writing Rainbow Symbols are a set of brightly coloured, hard wearing resources for use in all aspects of the teaching and learning process. Designed by Jane Considine, this excellent classroom resource is a must have for every teacher.

They are a perfect prompt to assist teachers when modelling writing through Jane Considine’s ‘The Three Zones of Writing’; the FANTASTICs, the Boomtastics and the Grammaristics.
