Writing Instruction: Together We are Going Above and Beyond

Beginning in kinder, do our children understand the reciprocity of reading and writing? Writing provides the real world relevance to learn phonics and grammatical rules. Reading provides examples of writers’ craft, authors’ purpose, choice of words, and use of figurative language. Writing gives us insight and inspires. We should strive to read through the lens of a writer and write through the lens of a reader. We also want to keep students’ individualism and artistic voices alive and full of imagination and wonder.

A first grade quote, “What I write I can read; what I read I can write.”

 So with that simple understanding may our goals be  ….

Our Students will:

  • Develop a love for writing and understand its value in their lives.
  • Write often throughout the day and across curriculum for many purposes and varied audiences.
  • Understand how to use the writing process to compose their works of importance.
  • Use thinking maps and other tools cooperatively and independently to organize, plan, and revise writing.
  • Maintain and use writing portfolios as a tool for reflection and analysis and meta cognition.

Our Teachers will:

  • Cultivate a classroom culture supporting inquiries and writings, allowing for student choices and topic selections. Choice = voice.
  • Be able to develop relevant mini lessons that are connected with other classroom instruction and have real world relevance.
  • Provide feedback to the writers and assess individual's as well as the overall writing achievement in the classroom. This may be done by student interviews and the use of rubrics and portfolios.
  • Honor and celebrate Students' writing.

Our School will:

  • Establish a common focus and school accountability for student performance.
  • Be able to instruct students according to their individual levels of writing achievement regardless of grade level placement.
  • Be able to identify areas of strength and areas needing improvement by grade levels and to develop a plan for meeting those needs.
  • Honor and Celebrate Student Writing
