The end of the year is almost here! (Rhyme intended, of course!) Oh, my!
So, even though we do write throughout the year, I am trying to focus a little more on writing as the year draws to a close. We are writing just for writing practice, writing for the holidays (We'll be writing for Earth Day soon.), writing for our reading responses, writing for science, and for any other reason I can think of!
|Writing during science|
I can't tell you how glad I am to have these writing journals handy! I just run off a set that matches our theme (or a blank one) and we're ready to write! I always give an example at the beginning (spelling by using our "kindergarten sounds"), especially one that encourages them to write MORE. I remind them to use our word wall, invented spelling, and ask friends. And, like I have to every year, I remind them that they are not as old as so-and-so's big brother, so they don't know how to spell everything yet and aren't expected to.
I thought maybe your class could use a set of these journals, too. So . . . I'm putting them on sale! They're 20% off all week (thru midnight CST on April 24th)! You can find them HERE. If you want to try them out first, download a FREE SET of 5 HERE.
If you download the freebie, please take a minute to leave a little feedback to let me know what you think. I hope your students like them!
Thanks for reading!
