Writing small moments is really hard for kids! It is difficult for them to visualize what a "small moment" is.
This set has an anchor chart to help them with the concept as well as graphic organizers, cameras and photo strips! Our first graders and 2nd graders loved using the cameras and the photo strips to draw their small moments.
The graphic organizers help them to plan and organize their event and the small moments within that event!
Included in the set:
-Anchor chart to make with the kids
-small size anchor chart for student use at the table
- example graphic organizers
-student graphic organizers
-cameras to help them "take a picture of the moment"
-photo strips to draw it
The anchor chart is for using during your Writing Workshop mini-lesson. The topic is “I can write about my Small Moments!" The idea is to make it with your students, but still be able to use it year after year without having to continually recreate it.
Print out the pages. Cut out the title and graphics that go with the title. Glue them down to a short chart tablet and laminate. Laminate the other slides and cut them out. Attach velcro to the backs of the words and graphics and where you will be attaching them to the chart tablet.
When you introduce each day the skill you want the kids to focus on, all you have to do is add it to the anchor chart. It is great if you have a switch class. You can just take off the skill that you taught that morning and re attach it for your afternoon class. This saves you a lot of time each year of creating the same anchor chart.
You can also use the small version of the anchor chart to show on the smart board or on a screen. This could stay up during their independent writing time for you to refer to as you are conferring.
We hope you find this helpful and you can utilize all the charts/posters with the kids! Happy Writing!
