We had a great week! We jumped into writing this week
focusing on
Ideas-one of the six writing traits we will be working on this year. We discussed that “good” writers first come up with ideas about topics they wish to write about. I introduced the class to their writing binders which we will be using this year as a helpful tool during writer’s workshop time. The first activity we did in our writing binders was to brainstorm a list of topics they thought would be interesting to write about. We finished the week reading the wonderful book: If You Were a Writer by Joan Lowery Nixon. It gave us insight on how to become a “good” writer ourselves. Make sure to ask your student if they can remember any of the book’s suggestions :o)
