CALL THE COPS! Freebie Poster for Writing

Hey friends!
At this point in the kindergarten year we are encouraging our kiddos to write three or more sentences about the same topic, using punctuation, finger spaces, capital letters and neat handwriting. This getting ready for first grade business is tough for them, so these COPS reminders will hopefully help!
They are also appropriate for first, second and third grade when students need to start using more transition words, outlines and organization in their writing. Since I love when things have full matching themes, I decided to run with the police theme and make speeding tickets and get out of jail free cards to match. I'm going to use the speeding tickets for kids who rush through work, and the get out of jail free cards as incentive/reward certificates. I'm so excited to put it all to use!
