Clip to ScrapBook #5

I am teaching 1st grade this year...but last year in kindergarten I used kidwriting. I will use writer's workshop this year. One thing I did with my kindergarteners..and will continue to use is a stop sign. My kids really caught on to this.
1. Did they start their sentence correctly? (color capital green)
2. Did they stop their sentence correctly? (color punctuation red)
3. Did they use popcorn words? (butter'em with yellow)

I don't call my word wall words popcorn words but they caught on to that quick. I had each student draw a picture. I pasted them on chart paper pages...then once a day the students came up and wrote a sentence about their picture. Then as a class we would do the stop sign routine coloring the capital, punc. and words.
