The IMA students and I our are currently working on our first classroom magazines. The children decided that we will have 2 different publications. One of the magazines will feature people and events going on at Chapman. The second magazine is a "Wonder Magazine." It will highlight information about our experiences in the Chapman Habitat. The science oriented "Wonder Magazine" will also showcase informational articles reflecting students' interests in the natural world.
Each student is responsible for writing and publishing at least 3 articles; students will publish their 3 articles in either of the IMA magazines. Last week students who decided to write about Chapman community members and events developed purpose statements and interview questions for their magazine articles. Several children already conducted interviews or have scheduled interviews for the coming week. Several children are taking photographs to support their articles. Children writing informational articles planned and started their research. Writing Workshop is buzzing with so much energy and enthusiasm!
Keep checking in for more information about our magazines. We will let you know the names of the publications soon.
