Tonight was an evening of celebration. This was our first year implementing writing workshop and this class showed me the power of this approach to writing. As I reflect back on the year, I think about all that I would have missed if I continued to traditionally teach writing. In the past I would teach a concept and assign every student the identical writing assignment. Now, I teach a mini-lesson and allow the kids to be authors. It is amazing what they have produced! I am so very proud of each and every student.
Students spent the past two weeks "publishing" a book they had written this year. We learned about revision, editing, and layout. This evening we celebrated our published books and our writing portfolios with a pizza party. Thank you to all of our amazing families! Tonight would not have been possible without your support and dedication to your child's education .
