In writing this week we have maintained our focus on ideas. Now that our Writing Workshop is up and running it is important for my wee little authors to be able to choose a thoughtful idea quickly and easily and write about it while being engaged in their own topic. Our goal each day this week was to stick with the same idea for the entire writing time (quite difficult for many, I am sure you can imagine). Most were able to do so but of course it is still a challenge for many.
We completed our heart maps this week and I am also using Lucy Caulkins as a writing resource. In one of the first Lucy lessons I have the kids make list of places they’ve been, people they know, special times with friends etc. This then serves as a list of go-to ideas when normally I would hear “I caaaan’t think of ANYthing”.
I hope you enjoy this freebie and that writing is off to a good start for you, as well!
