After much hard work brainstorming, revising, and editing we shared our personal narratives this week. Everyone had the opportunity to sit in the rocking chair and read their story to the rest of the class. After each student finished sharing their story the rest of the kids wrote a praise note. Each praise note contained a specific compliment about what they liked about the writing piece. When we were finished each student made a praise chain out of their notes. When we put them all together end to end the chain reached about half way around the room. Now that’s a lot of praise! The kids did a fantastic job on their narratives. I hope to have them start posting some of the completed pieces under the Writing Workshop page. Stay tuned.
