Writing in the Classroom #1

Weekly Writing... ready to go!!
A couple of years ago, I made writing one of my goals to work on.
I began with  my reading program and decided to start there since we were spending a lot of time discussing the literature and essential question throught out the week.


I always model along with my kiddos during writing time especially the beginning of the school year.  
I find that it helps answer questions along the way and allows the discussion and instruction to flow freely.


I decided that for me... it was better to have them all bound together from week 1.  We got our booklets out and had everything we need .
I work with other that have chosen to use this same product, however, they prefer to print it week by week and keep them separate.
Either way works ;)


Next time, I will share another writing activity that we use to allow creative writing to flow freely... especially during our Daily 5 block :)

We've loved using the Wonders Weekly Writing! I opted to print one unit at a time and staple the pages like a book. This way I can send the booklets home at the end of the unit, rather than wait until the end of the year.

Kynda... That's a great idea.
I'm sure the parents loved reading them as the year went on. This was the same thinking as my co-worker and friend!!
Thanks for sharing!!!
