writing process

Clip to ScrapBook #4

I provide a preprinted graphic organizer that does not have room for complete sentences. I model a think aloud and then how to jot it down without writing out my whole thought. Just enough to remember for the draft stage. I also do each stage of the writing process on a different day. Brainstorm one day. Next day graphic organizer. Draft....etc. When they are drafting I walk around and check off their prewrite. If they write complete sentences, I have them redo it.

I model each stage of the writing process on my document camera. When I draft I think aloud and double space, etc. Just yesterday (with sixth graders!) I had to model publishing because they asked if they had to double space (no only on a draft) and I noticed a couple struggling with paragraphing. I think their brains are clogged with hormones!
