It's finally Friday!!! Hallelujah! I am worn out! My class this year is just awesome. They have their little moments, but they're really good. They work their little hearts out during writer's workshop. It has been an adjustment for them, but they are getting the hang of it. We are learning a lot about how to edit our writing and what to do when we think we are done.
The Lucy Calkins series has a saying for the students to recite when they think they're finished: "When I think I'm done, I've just begun!" I'm pretty sure I repeat this 40 times a day! They want to start a new piece so bad!
I have taught them that when they have pulled themselves out from their writing, they are to pull themselves back in and do the following.
They are starting to get the hang of it, but we still need some more work on adding to our piece. I hope you grab a copy and let me know how they work for you! We are linking up one final day this week with Blog Hoppin'! Head on over and get yourselves some freebies! Have a great weekend!
