Mrs. Bauer, my friend as well as my long-term sub led the students through their final writing cycle. The kids got to choose their topic as well as the genre that would best fit the topic. I saw such a wide variety of work.
- stories written as books
- scientific reports
- a timeline
- informational writing
- personal narrative
- characters' points of view
I had a wonderful time with my young writers. We ended our sharing time by sitting in a big circle and talking about some of what they focused on in this last piece of writing. They named things like finding interesting details, writing a strong lead, using subheadings and other nonfiction text features, using dialogue correctly, and figuring out where to put paragraphs.
I'm very proud of their hard work. It's been a great year for learning and I'm going to miss this great group of kids. Please enjoy the slideshow.
