First, let me say that I started using Words Their Way in my classroom this year and I absolutely love it! That being said, I have 5 different spelling groups yes, fiveand spelling takes up more time than it used to when I just used the same list for everyone.
If you would like to receive our 30 Days of Thanksgiving Ideas each day, enter your name and email in the box to the right. Since that time I was once again reminded how important it is to let your children have some ownership over their writing topics.
Let me share my story…. His lesson was to write a 5-paragraph biographical sketch. In the back of my mind, I thought it would be great if he wrote about one of the early church fathers. We were studying the end of the Roman civilization and it would help him remember one of them.
I could tell his disinterest as we talked about his topic. So, we started talking baseball. Hunter just finished reading a biography of Derek Jeter, so I suggested doing his paper on Jeter. He had to use a minimum of 3 sources, only one could be the internet. He would write about Derek Jeter.
On the first day, he found interesting and important information about Derek Jeter. On the second day, we narrowed his paper to three topics about Derek Jeter.
Next week, he will outline his paper and begin writing. Believe me, I have a much happier son because he is writing about someone he likes, not someone Mom told him to research. I know his paper will be much better, just because he has an interest in his topic.
Do you let your kids take leadership, or ownership, in their writing topics?
If not, why not? Next week, discuss a writing assignment and let your kids choose their own topic. They will be so glad you did and you will be glad when you read their finished paper! Let me know if your kids are shocked that you let them choose their topic.Students write a sentence about their New Year's resolution, then draw a picture.
This worksheet has dotted, primary lines for writing. Students write a short paragraph about their New Year's resolutions.
