Writer's Workshop

This week we started Writer's Workshop up again after a long break for our science unit, and the kids are writing up a storm! We started off by brainstorming why writers write, and what we could write about. Each morning we spend approximately thirty minutes in free writing time, except Mondays, when we write about what we did over the weekend. This is one of my favorite times of the year, when kids start to synthesize all they've learned about writing for the past six months - stretching out words, using spaces between words, labeling pictures, using periods - to write some very cool pieces. I love seeing what they come up with. Below are some pictures of the kids in action: using their alphabet charts to sound out words, drawing pictures, and writing letters, poems, and non-fiction pieces.

"Ways we can make the world a better place: Riding a bike."
"Yo-yo, yo-yo, bounce, bounce, bounce. Down goes the yo-yo"
"Bounce, bounce, bounce. The yo-yo is bouncing."
