"I know things! By writing what I know, I can teach others!"
So true! I always start out my unit with Lucy's words and I've even written them on the included brainstorming pages.
Looking for How-To and All About papers for your Lucy Calkins unit? Look no more! What you have here aren't lesson plans. Rather, you'll get papers and helpers that have been well thought out and aimed at first/second graders for the two units. The finished books looks polished and will be ready to hang up for all to enjoy!
My Pick-a-Prompt writing products are a fun change of pace for my students. They love the fact that they have a CHOICE of topic. They get to decide whether they want to share their thoughts, opinions, make lists, write letters, songs, poems, etc., and even if they want a prompt that allows them to be a bit silly at times!
✿There are eight pages of prompts with three prompts on each page. Kids highlight their chosen prompt or simply put an X on it and respond to that prompt.
✿I run these prompts two-sided with the back being the fully lined page that’s included in this packet. I always have extra lined-only pages run off for my voracious writers! I get quite a few two-three page responses!
✿All prompts are available with primary and secondary handwriting lines which make these appropriate for Grades 1-4.
✿If you walk into my room, I usually have several of these hanging up around the room. I also use them for homework once a week and the kids partner share responses during morning meeting the next day. Sharing responses allows the children to get to know their classmates a bit better and helps foster a stronger classroom community.
✿As always, I model, model, and model again several of these before giving them out. It make such a huge difference in the quality they produce! The kids know that I won’t accept one word or sentence answers! The more I model and have kids share responses, the better the results are from the whole class.
