Our published books
Last month we officially became authors! While we do lots of writing throughout our day, this was the first time had done a dedicated Writers Workshop hour, where the kindergarteners chose what to write about - anything from letters and poems to fantasy stories and non-fiction topics. We studied writing strategies such as how to brainstorm writing topics, the importance of putting spaces between our words, and how to use an alphabet chart to help sound out words. After several weeks, each student picked their favorite piece to publish, edited it, and made fancy covers. I was so impressed with their writing skills and how the final writing turned out! Below are some examples of writing and editing in progress, as well as the proud authors with their published work.
