We are learning about things that writers and illustrators do… and we are becoming them ourselves! In Reader’s Workshop, we have learned different ways to “read” our favorite read-aloud stories with our reading buddies, and are adding real things we can read to our book boxes every week. So far we have our poetry journal, class name chart, Brown Bear book, alphabet linking chart, a sight word book, and one of our letter books. We are beginning to learn “popcorn” (sight) words and are using them in our writing and reading now!
In Writer’s Workshop, we are learning how to be just like our favorite authors. Here is our anchor chart for what we can do when we write.
