Good Writing Skills

I am so excited about introducing two of my latest products. They are 'A Recipe for Good Writing' and 'The Process of Writing Posters'. These writing posters are fantastic for your writing or literacy centers. Of course every teacher wants to help their kids to eventually be able to write competently and independently. For that reason we expose them to the rudiments of good writing. I made these posters as a guide to be displayed in the classroom. The graphics are kid friendly and the font is easy to read. I suggest that these posters are more suited for kindergarten through grade 2. As they progress through elementary school the skills become more complex.

If you wish to get further information on these posters that I offer click the pictures to find them in my TPT store!

Building Literacy Skills Through Storytelling

I found this really fantastic way to help our students link pictures to words, and surprisingly, this is new to me. Now I'm accustomed to teaching them to write stories by giving them the stimuli, maybe a word bank also, then have them build it all the way up, but this is different!

This video from the Teaching Channel shows where the teacher encourages the children to draw their picture then she goes around discussing it with them then she writes the entire story for them. It's like she's the mediator or something. She processes their ideas and makes it available to them in print form. This is a super idea! I can see them learning to read with their own story. This is motivation enough for me!

Anyway, take a look at this amazing video.
