Writing Workshop Choices
This week we have been working on new options for writing during our Writer's Workshop time in the day. Up until this point, the students have been working on sentence formation and writing in their journals. I felt the class needed a change of pace and were ready to become writers using multiple writing techniques. The choices the students have so far are to write a list, make a card where there is words AND pictures, respond to a picture, handwriting practice and writing a book review. Writing in their journals as a free write is also still an option. I am hoping to add even more options depending on how they do as a group with these five choices. For now, the class has done an excellent job practicing each choice independently after it was introduced that they should be ready to start choosing which writing they want to work on during Writer's Workshop!
