Write On!

Journal writing is a SPECIAL time in our classroom!

Why we feel it is important to share our journal writing in the classroom…
  • Makes it possible for all students to participate
  • Opportunity to share personal experiences with each other
  •  Preparation for talking to an audience
  •  Classmates are able to give positive feedback about writing strategies used (Capital letter, spaces between words, ending mark, details in picture)
  • Gives the students confidence in their writing ability!
This anchor chart helps keep track of who is "READY TO SHARE" and "I HAVE SHARED" since we cannot fit in everybody each day! CLICK HERE for our TpT FREEBIE! CLICK HERE for of TN FREEBIE~ 
You can get these fun chalk colored pencils from CREATIVE CLIPS for FREE!

This year we made these A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E Kisses!  When I saw these on Julie Lee's Blog, I knew I had to make them.  You can find her sister's unit, Valentine Unit (1st-2nd grade), by clicking {right here}.  The students really enjoyed making these and writing about what they would not kiss!  The girls got bows and the boys got mustaches!

Who would not want to kiss a Minion!?!

Our Valentine Party...KISSABLE CENTERS!
We set the class up in 9 different KISSABLE centers.  The students recorded their work throughout the day in their special....Hearts and Kisses...booklet. 

If you would like to do these KISSABLE centers in  your classroom...{Click Right Here} 

Did I mention....I LOVE CHOCOLATE!  Forget Love....I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!

Enjoy Your Weekend, Amber
