Clip to ScrapBook #4

After 14 years in first grade, I will be in second in August. I plan on continuing what I've found successful in first. After students unpack, they write in their journals (no prompt from me, this is free writing)and I never grade or mark their journals in any way. I have one group each day swap books from our class library into their book bins while others are writing. I finish lunch count, attendance etc. while this is happening. Once we begin morning circle (this year we will begin responsive classroom as well) one or two students are selected to read from his/her journal at the rug. S/he takes 2 questions or comments. We discuss the writing and sometimes put it up on the document camera where students first volunteer all the good things they notice. Then we make some suggestions. It's a great way to start my ELA block. They get writing in and no prep for me!
