Welcome to Ms. Pratt's Writing class. My writing class ties into my reading class in many ways. I will have the students working on writing during centers in Reading & on Poetic Devices during centers as well. My writing instruction also includes several pieces taken through the writing process and mini lessons to improve skills. (There are 8 units focused on in writing). I love to write & to teach writing. I enjoy finding creative ways for my students to learn to express themselves & feel pride in what they have to say. All pieces will be written in the classroom & the only homework you may see will be REDO-writing for Open Responses not finished in class.
Don't worry, it seems like a lot, but we don't do all these types of writing at the same time. 4th grade is a big year for writing, but the kids can do it. Just encourage them, and let them know that I am here to help.
