This year as a district the kindergarten staff decided to start the year with a month of interactive writing. I love interactive writing, so this was music to my ears! Each weekend a child takes this bag home. Before getting the chance to take it home, each child must bring back this permission slip: This weekend I took Pete home so that I can model how to complete the adventure journal!
Pete stays at your house until Tuesday morning. As we became more familiar with interactive writing throughout the week, I had them add in more letters for sounds they heard. The chart was hung in our classroom for reference throughout the week, but I then cut it apart to add the color words to our word wall: I was so impressed by these that had such great attention to detail: Some students chose to copy the color word from the chart to add to their page!
I bound the pages together using a binder ring to make a class book that we will hang in our book nook class library. They are already reading this one with excitement-and independence, during Readers Workshop!
For this one we practiced making sentences of things we see on a bus: Rather than make a class book we made a bus craft as our follow up. They only had to cut out the pre-traced bus. I had the wheels and windows pre-cut.
We used it as a springboard to discuss things that make us happy! Here are a few I chose to highlight: When we first read it, we discussed places in a school and then went on a tour around our school to find all of them. This time we used it to list places in our school: As you can see from the beginning of the week to the end, the amount of letters they wrote increased!
I handed out dry erase boards, markers and socks erasers so that students not writing could write too: So as a student came up to add to our list: The others wrote that letter at the same time on their own boards: Some tried to copy the words, other just practiced the individual letters.
And when it was time for independent writing, they were sent back to illustrate a place in our school: Look at the details he is including already- sun and grass! This is the children looking out the classroom window And to a 5 year old, the lunchroom probably does look like just a bunch of long tables!!!
I put a few of our interactive writing charts up for display along with Pete: They were so excited when they came in the next morning and saw Pete! Pete is now ready to for his first family visit and we are ready to continue working on interactive writing for another 2 weeks!
Be sure to come back and visit to see how our interactive writing continued to grow!PRACTICE: Dr. Seuss Writing Prompts. In honor of Dr.
