WOW what an awesome week it has been during writers' workshop! Our writers' folders are starting to fill up! We have piles of informational books, and our work is pretty impressive!
This week we took a careful look at our pieces. We noticed some of our writing we thought was done, needed more! We swept up the loose ends, we cleaned up some of our spelling and punctuation, we elaborated in our pieces with MORE facts and FANCY vocabulary, we even started to learn how to take a "STEP BACK" and look at our writing and think to ourselves, "How will readers receive (understand) this? What should, or could, I add? What should, or could, I subtract?" We rolled up our sleeves, and began the process. It hasn't been easy! This is all so new! It is hard work going back and fixing up all the amazing writing we have been producing! Ask us how we are spotting places in our writing and what we had to add or even subtract in our pieces!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
