Yesterday, I shared a little about our Writer’s Notebooks in first grade. Here’s another little glimpse.
We spent some time browsing through magazines. The kids cut out pictures of things/people/animals that they might want to use in their future writing. They added labels, helping to remind them of the important aspects from their pictures.
Some kids took their ideas even further and started drafting sentences they’d like to use in their books.
Other kids just collected inspiration.
Even kids who struggle in writing excelled at this activity… and THEY WERE SO EXCITED TO START NEW STORIES!
Inspiration comes from many places. Our magazine work was just one of those. I’ll keep sharing our Writer’s Notebooks as the days go on!
