Work on Writing center

I remember seeing this idea on Pinterest, and falling in love with it!  I do Daily 5 in my classroom and my Work on Writing station is always the most dreaded.  So I'm constantly thinking of ways to spice it up.  The writing during Daily 5 is completely separate from my normal writing block, and this little writing center idea has been a life saver.  I created one that I felt would work great with my group.  I start with modeling each of the choices on different occasions, and then adding it to my "I can Write a...." wall.  For each of the choices, I have at least 2 choices of stationary or paper to complete the writing.  My pack includes 9 writing choices: 
JOURNAL ENTRY (for whole class journals)

Here are a few pictures from the file. 


Do you do Daily 5 in your classrooms?  What do your kids do during the Work on Writing time?  How do you keep it from being the most dreaded rotations of all?  I would like to offer this file to the first three followers to comment answering the questions above!  Don't forget to leave your email address!
