Looking for a way to get your scribblers, inventive spellers, and advanced writers actively engaged in a common theme related literacy building activity? Then Itsey Bitsey Writers Journal pages will sure to be a hit in your classroom. Each Back to School theme page features a question that children actively brainstorm about during whole group. They also have helpful visuals to help prompt and guide verbal exchanges among peers. Building language and increasing vocabulary is the foundation of developing great writers. All students are given a journal page that meets their individual needs. Students respond by drawing a detailed picture with a written response. Beginning writers receive pages with visual prompts only, to help them focus on the topic question in their drawing. Developing writers receive the page with visual prompts and a few beginning sounds. This will help young writers associate words and their beginning sounds. These pages will encourage inventive spellers to write the sounds they hear in words. Advanced young writers are confident inventive spellers who are now interested in spelling words correctly. They will love the challenge of writing responses with a few new words they are learning how to spell. It’s writing fun for everyone!
