The Excitement Continues!
Week One of Web Building is coming to a close and all I can say is...WOW!!!! The IMA kids created a welcome page, an "All About Me Page," and added a blog for daily writing. The children are beginning to store finished writing projects on their website too. Many children added a book log, documenting their reading for the entire year.
Our next writing project is a literary essay, which will take the form of a book review. We will study other reviews, develop our own check-list for a quality book review, and select a favorite book to share with an audience.
Interesting observation: The children are working so intently as they write and create that you can quietyly hear their brain cells humming and their creativity singing! Feel free to visit our classrooms during writing workshop and check out our new websites.
