Writing Modes Chart

Writing modes always had me so confused when I was in school.  Hopefully this will help my students remember.
First I brought in a Christmas gift.  We were all very curious about what it could be what it was for.
Then we began our chart.  We drew the gift. 
 And then explained the four modes of writing using the gift.

 Some of their reasons were great!
 We could even smell what was inside the gift.
Each Monday, I write four prompts on the board.  These become the prompts for Work on Writing.  Now that we have introduced the modes, students can start being the creators of our weekly writing prompts. 

Happy Writing!
