Let's Write About Our Prized Possessions : Ongoing Writer's Workshop

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(166)
Students write better when they have a personal connection to topics. They'll bring a prized possession to class as the subject of their writing. After sharing, they'll write about it. I'll teach phonics, spelling and reading skills, too.

Class experience

Students will write sentences with a complete thought, and use the correct conventions of writing with uppercase letters to begin and periods to end the sentences.  The prompt will be to write about a prized possession.  Beginning writers may write one sentence which can be a caption for their picture.  More experienced students may write a story with an opening, details and closing.  Students may illustrate their stories, and the stories and pictures can be shared at the end of class.
I'm an elementary school teacher and spent most of my career as a homeroom teacher in first and second grade.  I also worked as a reading teacher instructing in small groups for grades K-3.  Students need to develop their writing skills.  They need to practice writing a sentence with a complete thought and use writing conventions correctly.  As students develop their writing, they grow from writing one sentence to writing an opening sentence, details and a closing.  This class is meant to guide that learning while engaging the student to write about a prized possession that is meaningful to them.  Students will vary in ability and their writing will reflect where they are in their writing development.
Students can choose lined or unlined writing paper. Unlined paper and crayons, colored pencils, or markers can be used for creating illustrations.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
