Reflection: Coherence Writing About Our Daffodils - Section 1: Engagement: Remembering Autumn


A Writing Portfolio Strategy: I like the idea of teaching language arts authentically. Writing across the curriculum mixed with teaching language arts is easy to incorporate rather than using worksheets and textbooks. I also use language arts to facilitate their learning and transfer it into working and living pieces within the portfolio. For example,if we are studying adjectives in IXL, I then use the samples from the portfolio as application. They edit their work to create better adjectives in piece of choice. It's great!
