Question Words for Writing Workshop
The first thing I want to share with you is something I am teaching in Writing Workshop this week. I have a lesson I teach about the questions How and Why. We talk about how they should always be asking themselves how and why as they write. To make this stick in their mind, I made the "How" and "Why" questions that sit on our shoulders as we write. During writing workshop, I walk around with them on my shoulders. The kids love it! Since there are other questions the kids should be thinking about, I made sticks with questions on them topped off with another pom-pom with eyes. Below you can see some of the ways my students chose to keep them so they could remember. This really seems to stick with them as they write! I hope you enjoy!
