Writing Process Folder for Kids

writing process folder

One of the subjects we’re fine-tuning around here is writing. I want my children to become more comfortable with the writing process – prewriting, revising, editing, etc. So, I designed writing process folders to get their writing in tip-top shape.

You Can Do It, Too!

Everyone can benefit from improved writing. And if you’re looking for a way to help your child improve his/her writing, a writing process folder may be a huge help. Plus, it’s really easy to make. Here’s how to do it:

Glue or staple 3 folders together

I used plastic folders and a hot glue gun because I want these folders to be around for when my 4 and 2-year-olds start writing essays.


I used poster board cut-outs for labels, but writing directly on the folders works, too. (My boys aren’t usually excited about editing and re-writing, so I made their folders colorful, and hopefully appealing.)


There is no one way to label your folders. I added a few steps specific to my children’s learning levels: e.g. Develop a working thesis statement and Conference. However, I didn’t veer off course from the trusty ol’ writing process.

Take a look inside our folders:

    Hi Angel,
    Without sounding redundant or trite, “keep up the good work!!!” I love reading the activities you prepare for the kids. It is obvious that you prepare well.
