We finished our study of personal narratives in Writers Workshop this week. After checking our work using a checklist, rereading our stories to our writing partners, and checking again, it was time to fancy up our work! Publishing is a big deal, so we have a special song (one some of the children recognized--it's featured in the video below!) and we made special writers' hats to let people know we have stories to tell!
Our next unit in writing will be "How-To" books--focusing on our expertise to teach other people about something! It promises to be just as rewarding!
