Reflection: Lesson Planning Close Read: A Day's Work - Assessment Day - Section 2: Writing Prompt


I had a long term sub after the birth of my second child who told me she cut down the amount of writing the kids were doing in the class while I was gone.  She thought I had them writing way TOO MUCH!  I do have my kids writing frequently in the classroom, however, I have found it to be very beneficial. It has been my observation that a child's ability to right well has an effect on the child's ability to read well.  There is a direct correlation (in my non-scientific personal observation.)  I have found this to be true at every grade level I have taught so far.  (1st through 4th grades.)  I try to teach the kids that writing can be fun and a way to express yourself.  It is a kind of art.
