WeAreTeachers Staff on November 1, Anchor charts are a great way to make thinking visual as you teach the writing process to your students.
Monday, March 31, Writing realistic fiction stories One of my favorite parts of the school day is writing time. I love joining together on the carpet to discuss what writers do, I love the mini-lessons that are to the point, I love hearing Martha Stewart's lullabies everyday and I love scooting in beside a writer and conferring.
I have to say I like it a lot better than the old Units of Study but still love to create my own lessons.
Below are charts based off the charts in the book with slight changes. I really love the checklist for each genre. My students are constantly at the chart or looking at their personal one inside their writing folder. I said above that I love creating my own lessons.
If you have read my blog before you know I love to use mentor texts as examples. In every genre, we use several books to name authors' introductions and conclusions. It can be quite eye opening what the students notice.
For this realistic fiction chart we used Junie B. Everyone in my classroom loves Charlie and Lola, including me! To prepare the chart I only have the title and the book pages. The students decide how to label what the author is doing.
Before the unit our first grade team reads over the rubric for the county and we create pages that look like Emerging, Progress with Support, Meeting and Exceeding. We keep them in page protectors so we can model how to add on to a paper that isn't meeting standards or how to enhance a meeting to an exceeding story.
We make goals for our time each day based off the rubric and it really helps to refer to during conferring. NOW comes the number one thing that influences my students writing Each day we start our workshop by admiring someone else's work. During the workshop, I usually try to look out for pages to admire.
I'll say to the student, "At the end of writing can I borrow your paper?3rd Grade Writing Kindergarten Writing Rubric Writing Rubrics Kinder Writing Lucy Calkins Kindergarten Writing Assessment First Grade Assessment Writing Centers Grammar Anchor Charts, Folktale Anchor Chart, Fiction Anchor Chart, Reading Skills, Reading Strategies, Reading Comprehension.
