This Week in Room 204
1. Underline the important words in the writing prompt. That way your child can refer back to the question to help with spelling.
2. Keep your sentences simple and try to use simpler language, especially if your child is having trouble hearing all sounds in words.
3. For a challenge, add details to the first sentence.
4. Sketch and label the picture. We are very used to this because of writers workshop.
Visitors in the Classroom
Other teachers and professional development educators have also visited my room. The kids are very good at focusing their attention on me and doing what they are supposed to be doing, being scholars!
Interactive Writing and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Below is an example of Interactive Writing books we did this week. Not only did they learn about who MLK was, but they wrote a book about him. After the book is done, I make copies of them for the kids to put in their Readers Workshop bag and it becomes a Shared Reading experience.
