Give your kiddos an outlet to celebrate the hard work they did all year long by helping them choose pieces of their writing to make even better and include in their very own Writing Portfolio that parents are sure to treasure for years to come!
This is an editable download that includes a Contents Page, a Cover Page, and a letter home to parents explaining the project and asking for their help in creating a nice cover for their child's portfolio.
What I do is provide my kids with a list of possible items they may want to include and let them choose. For example, they may have written three poems over the year- they choose ONE to include. They might look back over all the writing in their journals and choose a couple pieces to revise, edit, and publish. After they choose the items they want to include, they decide (with my help and the help of peers) what changes can be made to make their pieces even better. After working on all the pieces and getting them ready, they compile them into a booklet portfolio and we have an Author's Celebration!
