FINALLY, the light bulb goes off and here is my super writing trick. As I am introducing sight words, I incorporate them into the writing center.
Here is what the center looks like:
|I have enough of these sheets on the table for all the kids to see. Typically, I have no more than 4 kids at a center. This week the focus words were Look at...|
|Here is one students work.|
|Look at the candy cane.|
|Look at the wreath.|
|Look at the tree.|
|Look at the candle.|
|Present. Look at the present.|
Here is my next book:
The best part of all is that students who are higher can write MORE and students who are lower can draw and label pictures. But I have to say, all students in my class are writing. It makes writing a risk, without it being too scary! Also, it gives them a little reader they can take home. A lot of times when I see students finished copies, I send them to read it in the office where the office ladies or our principal makes them feel SUPER special!
I hope you find this as helpful as I find it! Let me know!
