How to Accept a GIFT! This is an awesome writing experience for children.
I know for sure that change is going to happen and I am not always comfortable with change.
I know for sure that I love my family and there are A LOT of people in my extended family. I am glad for each and every one of my family members. It is messy sometimes because there are lots of members, and it is ok because we love each other. We are there for each other.
I know for sure that I love to work. The extended family does too even when family members don’t know they love to work or don’t want to acknowledge the love of work! We are workers!
I know for sure that I value ethical people and ethical behavior.
I know for sure that I value with-it-ness!
What do you know for sure?
The teacher on this website had her class write All About Books. The topic was winter. They are awesome. Your class could pick any topic.
I prefer the idea of having students complete writing projects in the sequence of gradual release: I Do, We Do, You Do. When the teacher writes or models writing, it is I Do. When we write together, it is We Do. When students choose their own topics and write individually it is usually You Do.
