Wow! Our writers are creating with their voice! Everyday in Writer's Workshop we observe, practice, or learn a writing skill. Students are given time to write, as I visit with authors about their books. We pull published books, peer writing, and sometimes my stories to look at writing traits that can be used in our writing.
Giving voice has been a focus. At the end of writing I look for someone who showed the trait in their book to share.
I was so proud of their writing. Congratulations to Patrick our Author ofthe Day!
