Unifix Cube Writing

Hi all! I am so excited to link up for the month of April with my bright idea... so many amazing bloggers and ideas that I can't wait to shuffle through and see how I can become a better and more efficient teacher.  Bright ideas rock! Thank you to Shelley Gray who has made this monthly blog hop possible!
I learned about this bright idea about 4 years ago when I was a reading teacher, and a woman had her first graders use unifix cubes to demonstrate where they were in the writing process.

This helps to keep your classroom more organized and less disruptive.  You are able to meet with individual students and not have all of your kids coming up to you at once with questions.  It's a great check in process that I know can be used for any grade level!
  All you need for each student is a green, yellow, and red unifix cube.  It's kind of like a "traffic" tool! : ) Feel free to make it your own and use any colors that will best fit your classroom.  
Below shows the different colors and what they mean:

If you enjoyed my bright idea, please consider following my blog, facebook, and my TPT store : ) I also have a Pinterest!! (Got to love social media!)

  1. Awesome! I use plastic cups ( http://eslcarissa.blogspot.mx/2013/12/props-for-classroom-management.html ) , but I can see the appeal behind using the cubes instead. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. The Write Tools writing process is what we use in our district, and this is built into the strategy. We have really enjoyed using a lot of the activities and strategies that are provided through this Writing Process!
