1-3-10 Free Write Form

September 25, 2012

A 1-3-10 Free Write is a great activity to leave for a sub (as long as your students are trained and you leave clear instructions!!) because it takes quite awhile to do. It is beneficial, but I have a hard time justifying chunking out such a long period of class time when I am there and can be input-ing Spanish into my students. 1 3 10 timed writes are the best way for students to have processing time built into their writing task!I created this form for my students to use when they do a free write. It has the instructions written in case they are tuned out when they are explained. I have created one form that is one-sided and does not contain any rubrics, and then one form that is two-sided and contains rubrics (different back sides contain rubrics for the different levels I teach. The form has allowed the process to move along faster and more smoothly since the word count process is simplified, and grading is much easier when I use the form with embedded rubrics.
