Teach: Writing

Organizing Research Notes for Expository Writing [Each envelope represents a subtopic. Inside the envelopes, students tuck pieces of support or facts for that particular subtopic. Folds up and fits in writing folders.] {Stacy Shubitz @Marisela Carranco} {Two Writing Teachers}

8 whole class journals for the students to write in. Select 8 students each week to write in one of the journals. The next week, 8 different children will be selected to write, and so on. By the time were finished, each journal should have about 25 different entries written in them. Students will be able to read what their classmates have written as well.

Students write a letter to a parent about what they did during the week. The parent writes back a short note in response. "If the students bring their Friday Journal back on Monday with a parent response, they receive a sticker on the cover of their journal. By the end of the year, the cover looks really cool and the parents have a special keepsake."

Writing Offices for students. The students have these offices available when they are writing and can refer to the info.

My students are always talking about having swag, so I decided to use it to my advantage. We should be writing with swag!
