I use the Sneak Peek at Summer writing as my On Demand Writing Assessment.
The Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project states, " You’ll be able to see where a particular child’s narrative writing falls in a continuum of development, and imagine what the next steps might be for that child. Then you’ll be able to show the child pieces of writing that are just one notch beyond what the child is writing on his or her own, and even to articulate what a child is already doing in one ‘line of development’ (say, including dialogue) and then articulate what the next step might be in this particular line of development, showing the child an example of what it means to do that next step."
The I'm Unique Poem uses m&ms for the apostrophe m in I'm which leads in to a perfect lesson or follow up on contractions. It includes 3 different girl patterns and 2 boy patterns in back and white.
The Sweetest Thing About Me was designed to get students thinking about what makes them special. It was made to be used for Speaking and Listening Standards, as students present to each other.
Purple Paula is designed to be a character building lesson on how to treat others. I always start out by reading Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. We chart how Chrysanthemum was feeling throughout the book and site evidence from the text. We then discuss how to treat others. The next day (or whenever you choose) I read them the short story I created about Purple Paula. Kiddos then have to write an ending to the story that shows what they would do in this situation. Students can then create a Purple Paula of their own. Depending on the age of your kiddos, this could also be used as an independent center.
