As we progress through the year, I am seeing how vital it is to have conversations about vocabulary with either a thematic topic, or a topic of the child’s choosing during writers workshop. My students are really getting into labeling every illustration, and we are making the transition to writing the words in sentences! Can I get an “Oh Yeah!”? This is going to have a huge impact on learning and writing in consecutive grades too. Here is my latest labeling freebie. I love comments, and would love to hear how you incorporate mapping and labeling in writers workshop. Enjoy!
Also, several teachers have placed their reduced items in a linky party! Everything is $1.99 or less! How can you beat THAT??? 🙂 Just click on the button below to take you there!
