Writing Workshop: Personal Writing Portfolios

By Beth Newingham on January 24, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

Once students are finished with their final copies as part of Writing Workshop, they insert the finished writing pages into page protectors and then put them into their personal Writing Portfolio Binders.

My students used PrintShop in our school computer lab to make special cover sheets for their writing portfolios. I also make copies of the final drafts and include them in a large binder that is kept in the classroom library so that students can read their peers' writing.

Each student has a tab in the Class Writing Binder so that readers can easily locate other students' writing.
