Is there a CAFE board for writing? How do you display your writing strategies?

Update: Due to the popularity of this post and Suzanne Rea's answer below, we created an updated thread. Please use the updated thread to request a copy of Suzanne's CORE menu. Updated thread: CORE Writing Menu. We will be removing posts below that contain email addresses.

Hello, I am a «conseillère pédagogique en français» in my school board in Gatineau Québec Canada and many teachers are starting to use CAFÉ in french. They love it. I would love to receive the writing menu so I could see how I can make one in french. A lot of teachers started using the http://www.heinemann.com/unitsofstudy/writing/ for writing. I wonder how I could bring all of it in one menu. Here is my adress: [email protected]. Thank you very much for the document.
Happy Easter!

I’ll send them your way–just a note that the menu format is based on the Sister’s reading menu, as noted on the bottom ;).

Hi! I’m new to Daily 5/CAFE. So new that I my first go at it will be next school year!!! I really like your CORE menu of writing strategies. If possible, could you please email me a copy of your CORE menu? [email protected]
If you don’t have one already, you should really consider opening a TPT store with the menu and headers for bulletin boards. I’m sure many teachers would be interested in having that available.
Now if someone would create a 4-letter acronym of strategies to work with Math Daily 3…
Thank you!

Attached is the menu I created with a third grade teacher. We call it “I-CAFE” and structured using the Writing Workshop process. Many of the menu items are district specific terms.

Does this mean you are doing “writing workshop” during “work on writing” time? or is this being done at another time during the school day?

2y

Many people do a writer’s workshop outside of the Daily 5 time. work on writing is reserved for free writing journal time. I’ll email you the menu.

Hi Suzanne, 

I would love a copy of the second grade one, if available.

I use Lucy Calkins Units of Study for Primary Writing for my writing workshop. I launch her first unit, small moments focusing on personal narratives. I do not introduce work on writing as part of my daily 5 until our writing workshop is in full swing. I allow for one hour 3 times a week alternating with science or social studies. I also have my students write about their "Weekend News" every Monday morning for about 20 minutes. If they don't finish, I have them finish during Daily 5 as a choice for work on writing once work on writing has been established.
