OK I never thought I would ever utter or write those words! Teaching writing has never been something that I have ever loved - disliked OK loathed probably would be a better way to describe my feelings about teaching writing to kindergartners until now. So what has changed??? I discovered the blogging world and some wonderful kindergarten teachers! I am in love love love with the writing units from Deedee Wills and Deanna Jump! Did I mention I love them! My kinders are doing sooooooo well with their writing. It has taken some time to get up and running and some tweaking in my schedule but I think we are finally on the right track. They are sooooo excited to finish our first writing unit and have our first publishing party tomorrow. What is even better is that they are super excited to start our next unit! Here are some examples of what they have been doing during this first unit.
Hope you enjoyed a peek into our writing unit! I will try and get some pictures of our publishing party tomorrow.
