Writing Partners

There are many things I love about this class, but I was able to add another reason today--they work VERY well together in partnerships! Today I was able to observe some excellent work happening in our writing partnerships. Students are working on revising one of their "Small Moment" stories--a story about something that has happened to them. I gave them a lot of freedom in their partner work today--read your stories to one another, ask each other questions, and make suggestions. Wow! It was neat to hear the writing conversations going on and to see revisions being made as a result. You will have an opportunity to see recent writing samples at your child's conference on March 6th.
