Small Moment Writing
We picked up with our Writers Workshop again this week. Our students are revisiting "small moment writing" or personal narrative writing. To help us think about pulling out one moment from an experience and writing as many details as we can about it, we read the classic The Snowy Day.
We also watched a wonderful video about a man and his elderly mother stopping in the snow. It is less than two minutes long, but so powerful in the details it provides and the emotions it stirs up. The children were enchanted with it and took to it as a guide to help "add more" and capture details in every moment of writing. Please watch and enjoy!
