At this point in the year, we are revisiting the three genres of writing that we've taught: true stories, how-to writing, and fiction stories.
We are also reteaching the writing process. Process is so much harder than content. It feels like we're teaching it for the first time. So maybe you could be helpful reinforcing this at home.
When you're child is writing at home, ask her:
"What are you doing as a writer today?"
"Are you planning or drafting?"
"Are you revising or editing?"
Having children enjoying reading their peers' writing is a great way to build appreciation for the writing process.
