Are you ready to Get "Reel" with Writing? I have pieced together a few of the strategies that I like best to create this nice supplement to all of the outstanding writing programs that are already out and about in our classrooms. This unit is not meant to be a writing curriculum all on it's own. Rather, it is created to enhance the program that you are already using during your daily writing instruction.
Get "Reel" with Writing explains and provides resources for several writing strategies that I have found extremely effective and motivating for the writers in my classroom. Some strategies spotlighted in this unit include "Color Your Words" Editing Strategies where the students learn to associate a specific color with an editing strategy/writing skill. You will also be introduced to a vocabulary strategy that I have implemented to enhance my students' academic vocabulary called Playground, Party and White House Words. This strategy will have your students using vivid vocabulary that will appeal to all of their reader's five senses and really create a dynamic and powerful piece of writing.
You can implement all of the strategies into your writing instruction or pick and choose to create a "perfect fit" for your classroom and more importantly for your budding authors! :) Check out the preview of Get "Reel" with Writing to see more.
