Celebrating Writers!

I have fallen in love with teaching writing workshop this year!  I LOVE it!

We spent the last month working on poetry.  We learned about haikus, limericks, sensory, concrete, freestyle, alliteration and acrostic poems.  We read lots of poetry, talked a lot about stanzas and lines, and learned about lots of figurative language.

The students wrote and wrote and wrote throughout the month. Then it came time to publish. They loved publishing on the computer! They published some on our fancy paper too! They created covers and Table of Contents for all of their published poems.  Here are a few examples!





Last week we finished our poetry genre unit. It is our last big unit of the year, so I wanted to really celebrate! One of my favorite parts of writing workshop is celebrating at the end of every unit.


We had a poetry jam, complete with snapping and a poet chair! Each student chose their favorite poem to share with the class.

Then they shared some of their other favorite poems with friends.


What's a celebration without food?  So I ordered a tasty cake!
My friend Elisabeth helped me come up with something cute to write on it!

Some of the kids shared their thoughts about writing.  I heard lots of things like, "I used to hate writing, but now I want to be an author!"  One of my little sweeties said, "When you handed me that notebook, I thought no way! I am not filling that up with writing! Now I want to get a new one to write in during the summer."  

I was so proud of my kiddos, they have turned into little authors! 

How do you celebrate writing in your class?

    1. Writing activates before apprentices even preference up a write, but there are several reasons to break and celebrate between the impression and the complete project. By selection students rejoice each stage of the script process and clapping achievement, we help our students and providing nursing assignment writing help services at Quality Assignment Help consultancy. And this type of carnival cultivates students, creates them better authors, and assistance them identify that script is a process complete with notable instants, not simply a consequence where book is the only indicator of success.
