Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant might be one of my favorite books…EVER!
When I love something, my students often do as well. Have you noticed that enthusiasm is contagious!
Here are is a little throwback to some previous writing in November.
We had been reading books with beautiful language. We read In November and Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant… LOVE! IT! Miss C wrote in the footsteps of Cynthia Rylant.
Here is Mr. E’s take on making gold. I tried to tell him that he could give me some of the gold he made… We will see if that happens.
This is a piece of writing that I usually share in some of my speaking conferences for one reason. Without the writing conference, the meaning of this piece of writing is unclear. However, after conferring with him I was blown away.
Please remember at the beginning of the year, emergent writers still have stories to tell. Their meaning is made through illustrations. However, some of those illustrations still need the author’s interpretation.
How is writing going in your classroom? If you are using our units, I would love to hear how it is going.
We have updated units 1-4 so far, the rest are coming soon! If you purchase the units at the old price, you will be able to download the update versions as they become available. So you may want to grab them while they are 20% cheaper.
