SYNTHESIZING - The next day, we talked about making Synthesis Sundaes. I mean, seriously…who doesn’t love ice cream?!?! I introduced this anchor chart and then we read “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. I think this is a GREAT story to teach synthesizing!!

Writing anchor charts. This is something that can be done as a classroom activity where student's brainstorm these ideas or look through mentor texts to see what tools published author's use. Posting the list on the wall can help student's when they begin writing a piece.
I love this entry about creating writer's workshop anchor charts. She also talks about reading Click Clack Moo to talk about why we write. I need to do this lesson in the first few weeks of school!
