Summer “Shorty Shorts” Writing

Writing workshop is off to a great start much due to the sharing on blogs. Our first writing activity is always special as the children personify fall and write to fall, in a poem titled “Fall, I wish I knew.” As always the children made individual webs of fall and what they hear, see, smell, taste, and feel when they think of fall. Then using the poem, “Winter, I Wish I Knew” as a model, they wrote their fall versions.
This week we finished our “Shorty Summer Shorts” stories, which I recorded and will have displayed in the hall to bring an end to summer and a beginning to fall.
Thank you, Marley, for the inspiration.
