Kids as authors
How do you all teach writing? I hope you model, model, model! Many of us have writing centers, where our students are expected to write independently. One of the writing centers that I have available to students is called Be an Author. To prepare them for this center, I teach a series of minilessons that include modeling/shared writing, interactive writing, and guided practice. With Be an Author, students add the words to a book with some illustrations. This center is perfect for kindergarten and first grade.
Kids LOVE to make their own books. Come by my blog and check out my
long thorough post about how I prepare my students for writing centers AND get your own free copy of one of my Be an Author books.
