I try to post during the week, but life is hectic. I know from emails that many teachers are following my students, and asking for more information. I’ll post something significant soon. I do need to say that my student’s writing parallels their reading development. They will tell you that they are ‘rocking and rolling’. Language Experience is the key.
Independent Journal Writing.
Journal Writing Samples: I always display a range of writing from my class. This is independent writing…and my students live near the beach.
Language Experience: Set Class Sentence composed independently and individually.
Language Experience Sentence: All students write our class orally developed sentence independently. Whilst my students are writing, I’m observing their use od strategies. The Language Experience orally created sentence is: We are eating lunch at school.
PrepD Student Led Interactive Writing.
PrepD Student Led Interactive Writing: Language Experience sentence orally created as a grade: Today we are having a special lunch. I was particularly interested in how they would tackle spelling ‘today’ and ‘special’, and I have to say I’m impressed.
P.S Send me an email if you would like more information.

Love it, especially those counters for spaces.
I’ll write up a post outline the strategies I use for Big Books. Thanks for the comment, as I always appreciate feedback.
I am so inspired by your site. I have a prep class and would like to see some Big book Reading strategies that you have used and activities that you do with a differentiated group. Your feedback will be greatfully appreciated.
