I have some great videos of my students that I took this past week. I am out of town and posting this on my phone, so I will load them later! This week, I just let my students be creative and write whatever they wanted to write!
Some wrote stories, some made books, and some worked with friends on writing. Now days, my students can not wait for writing time! It is really pretty awesome that they have learned to like writing that much that they are asking if we can write earlier in the day! They don’t want tol wait.
My students have become more confident and comfortable with writing. They try to or do each other and argue over who gets to share each day. Even the shyest students can’t wait to share. I have never been really confident in my own writing so I guess I didn’t value it much before. I can see that the more confident I have become and the more value I have put on writing, it has rubbed off on my students too.
