Writer's Workshop {Flipbooks}

One of my teaching goals this year was to improve my writer's workshop. Every year, I feel like I need to work harder at getting my students to write GOOD narratives. I started this school year with this huge goal for myself and I think things are working out pretty well so far!

A few months ago, I started teaching my kiddos about beginning, middle and end. Before that, most of my students were basically writing random sentences that didn't really flow into good stories. I was happy to see how well most of my students were grasping this new concept. However, I had several writers who still struggled with understanding that the three parts of their story needed to create a sequence and form a meaningful story. In order to help these eager writers, I decided to break it down for them. By putting each part (beginning, middle, and end) on a different page, they seemed to better understand that each part had to have good substance in order to create a story that made sense. Also, by putting these pages together and making a "book", my students were REALLY motivated to write and to create their very first book! They got it. I was happy. Life was good! HA!
