The Explain Everything Whiteboard App has revolutionized my use of students' writing as mentors in my writing instruction: Find out how! This freebie includes information about why I use the App the way I do and links to a 13 minute video demonstration. Additionally, I've included samples from kindergarten, first and second grade from my book 'We Can Do This! Student Mentor Texts that Teach and Inspire' (Stenhouse, 2017). You might use these to jumpstart your use of student mentors in your writing instruction. (Realize, though, you can use the App in the way I demonstrate with any grade level!)
You'll love the flexibility of this App and how engaged your students will be in your writing instruction!
