We have been filling up many, many pages in our individual writing journals this year. We took time one morning last week to go back and look through all of our writings since the beginning of the year. We spread throughout the room and found a piece where we thought we did our absolute best writing and illustration. Each student took turns and sat in the author’s chair and shared the piece of writing. Things we were looking for was capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, meatball spaces in between words, sight words and words we did not know spelled correctly and/or stretched out to hear the sounds, writing on the lines and punctuation at the end.
