Here is the first in a series of posts dedicated to the writing stages I currently have in my classroom. I thought I would start with most capable and independent to those needing the most support and guidance.
The non-fiction bug is taking hold in writer's workshop. One of my students got a new pen that can do fancy tricks, he decided this would be a good writing topic! Me too since it turned into another great non-fiction writing example for the class. I love it when the kids do the teaching for me.
"Here, look at what one of your friends did, you can too! Tell us what you did little teacher."
I love that he added an ending. this was purely independent and amazing to me, I have barely touched endings! However, he has picked it up on his own and is already trying it out. Love this!
