Are you a ‘Write Stuff’ school?
The Writing Rainbow poster is a classroom resource that encourages interaction and the collection of ideas during the writing process. The Writing Rainbow offers a complete view of ‘The Write Stuff’ methods and systems.
The poster is perfect for working walls to add pupil, and author, examples of sentence types and structures, e.g. a complex/multi-clause sentence, a simile sentence or a feeling sentence. The poster is organised into three tiers to match the ‘Three Zones of Writing’; the FANTASTICs, the GRAMMARISTICs and the BOOMTASTICs. Many teachers find this poster particularly useful to provide guidance for greater depth. Pupils who are familiar with this poster find that it reminds them of the wealth of ways they can showcase flair and structures independently during their ‘Deepen the Moment’ aspects of writing.
The poster is a bright and colourful reminder for demonstration writing. It encourages pupils by stretching and challenging independent writing.
This is an excellent tool for teachers and pupils that have adopted approaches to the teaching of writing found in Jane Considine’s book ‘The Write Stuff’.
