Writer's Workshop

pencil 2

In Writer’s Workshop, we are currently working on poetry! The children have been busy learning to look at the world through poets’ eyes and finding small moments, images, and objects that hold big, strong feelings and ideas. They have been learning how to create line breaks in their poems and search for honest, precise words for their poems. They are working on finding the rhythm and beat of their poems, as well. The children have really been enjoying choosing the poetry centers they have been working in to help them with their creative ideas. They have been putting their creative minds to work and have created poems about all kinds of topics, from nature to objects we see everyday, such as a straw. Ask your child what they have been writing their poems about and what centers have been their favorites so far! 

In Handwriting, we are coming along nicely with lower case letters in cursive!
