I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Writer's Workshop time in my classroom! My kinders are so brave in their writing and have learned so much about what good writer's do. I just wanted to share some of the little things that have gone on in our classroom this year to keep writing time moving forward.
Here are some of our anchor charts.
Here are some of the materials we use for independent writing.
Differentiated paper tray
Small moments catchers hats
Publishing tools (We only use crayons when we publish our books.)
Writer's toolboxes (Each partnership shares a box.)
Each toolbox has 2 stretchy the word snakes, 2 pencils, 2 spacemen, an alphabet chart, and 1 kiss stamp to "kiss" a period at the end.
This is my big stretchy the word snake that we used to understand stretching sounds to write words.
Share bears (In the middle of our independent/conferencing time, I take a quick walk around and hand these out to writer's who have work that is worthy of sharing.)
During share time, we share 2 stars (praise) and 1 wish (question). Then we check to make sure the work we saw at share time has earned a smiley sentence.
I would love to see what goes on in your writing time! Please leave me any links to posts or pins.
