Shared Writing

A few weeks ago we talked about ways to write a story. We used the words first, next, then, now and finally to put a story together telling the reader how to build a snowman. We created the story together as one example of how a writer writes.

Another way we talked about how a writer writes is by making a list. A writer does not always have to compose complete sentences to get his/her idea across. We decided to look around our room for objects that resemble a shape we have learned about in math. We labeled our list into four categories, circles/spheres, squares/cubes, rectangles and triangles/cones. The class walked about the room searching for things that reminded them of one of these shapes. Upon their return, we put the items in an organized list on our chart.
