We started our Writer's Wosk shop writing process filling out our first independent Graphic Organizer (from now on called a G.O. chart) . Our first writing will be out about our personal Lego Pal. See more here.
The children were asked to complete a simple G.O. by giving their personal lego pal a name, talent, a few personality traits and what they liked to do.
Once their G.O. charts were filled out they were asked to follow their GO carts for a first independent writing. ( Well not completely independent because their puppet pal did join them ;-)
Next week, they will be taught about the editing process. There will be about 4-5 writing projects this year following this process. Come back for more!
We send home all the edited work but the final product stays at school for Open House and stays in their portfolio of work to share.
