Work on Writing
We started building our stamina with our second Daily 5 choice today, Work on Writing. We started off by modeling all of the aspects of this new choice. One of the most important parts is that the students have to have a book out and open to one of their favorite pages and are to respond to the picture by writing and illustrating a response to the picture. Right now at the beginning of kindergarten, most students copy the picture down exactly and will add words from the page onto their page and/or label their picture. We will continue to build stamina with this new choice the rest of this week and will hopefully soon be choosing between Read to Self AND Work on Writing!
