    Hi Deedee,
    I love listening to The Classroom Collaborative! You and Adam always have great advice with a fun twist. I would love to hear yours and Adams ideas about journal writing in the K/1 classroom. We have a daily time block for journal writing with no prompts. What did journal writing look like in your classrooms? How did you use this work to help move students forward without marking up their writing? What were your expectations for journal writing at the K/1 level?
    Thanks so much,

      Thanks for listening! We use a series of rubrics for writers workshop. Most students write a story with 5-6 sentences with beginning capitalization, ending punctuation, and word wall words spelled correctly. Phonetic approximations for the other words is accepted and applauded. I hope that helps.
