Hello Everyone! Just a quick post about what I am looking for in my kids' writing at this time of the year. The target skills we have zoomed in on since the beginning of the year includes developing "readable" pieces, using upper and lowercase letters appropriately, spacing, adding details, reading back over our pieces, including a hook in the introduction, adding adjectives and adverbs, and many other skills. I keep an anchor chart up as a reminder to the kids, and to keep an eye on during our writer's workshop time! As we work on new target skills, we add them to our chart.
While working on writing with your kids at home, you can refer to this chart! Thanks for stopping!! Have fun writing! Joyfully! Nancy
