Linking the Common Core Standards to Writing:
Even at the primary and elementary grades, we know it is all about preparing our students to be college and career ready. Part of this process focuses on the fact that we need to make our students more independent and put them in charge of their own writing. Creative writing is part of that process and is included in the standards for primary and elementary students.
How to Use the Book :
While there is no right or wrong way to introduce students to this stationery, you might want to begin the following way. Place the reproducible sheet on the document camera and have students take a few minutes to look at the picture. Ask students to carefully look at the picture and then comment. Next, with the students help, create a classroom word bank based on words and ideas generated by the stationery picture.
For all grade levels, invite students to share their writing with you, with a partner, a small group, or the whole class. Display the completed essays on a bulletin board, or compile them to complete a collaborative class book. One other suggestion is to compile each student’s essays and send them home as a book to share with family.
By sparking their interest in a picture, this book will help your students build fluency and confidence as writers. Students will enjoy sharing their writing with you, their classmates and family. Whether you use this book for timed or processed writing is your choice. The most important step is that students write every day.
