Work on Writing Folder Kit

I made these work on writing folders for quite some time already and I am just coming around to sharing them with you all. My students LOVE the folders as do I. These folders act as "privacy folders" because they have a big "Writer at Work Do Not Disturb" sign on the back of them.  It was extremely easy to put the folders together. I first purchased colored manila folders because they are just too cute in color. I put 2 folders together and taped together. I then printed my kit onto white paper (I would probably use sticker paper now that I discovered it) and glued them onto the manila folders. Once I glued everything I wanted on my folders, I took them in to get laminated at a store just because our school's laminater is too thin. 

On the picture above you are able to see the "Do Not Disturb Writer at Work" sign on the red folder. On the outside flaps of the folders I put fry's word so my students can easily look up a word and spell it correctly. I also placed a Digraph Chart on there (sorry I don't remember where I got it from so I just smudged it out). I have a work on writing section next to my word work section. In the orange slots my students are able to grab their Work on Writing Folders along with any other materials they need with it.

On the picture below you can see the inside part of the folder. My students use this portion of the folder to help them pick something to write about and give their brains a head start. 

You can find the Work on Writing Folder Kit at my TPT store. Just click on picture below to grab yours.


  1. OMG! Thank goodness for Pinterest! I am so happy that I found your blog on there! I will be starting my first year of teaching 2nd Grade next year & want to do the Daily 5. I read the book but was still a little confused on how to implement it. I LOVE these folders! I may need to bite the bullet and just purchase the kit!
