Writers' Workshop Part 1

We've been plowing through writing (independently!!) since December. We begin by sharing what we like to do. This helps the students understand that their thoughts, ideas, likes, and wants are important. Here are some pictures showing the children's amazing progress the last two months!
We start simple-writing one sentence using the current week's popcorn words.
From here, we add a character we know-Pete the Cat.
We constantly practice identifying and using words on the word wall.
Find the word, touch it and write it!


We write about things we like. What is important to us as kindergarteners?

We talk about what we want to be when we grow up.
What do these community helpers do?

Next week, we will begin telling stories that can be real or make believe. From here, we will work on characters and sequence of events (beginning, middle and end of a story).
