Whether you are ready for it or not, the back-to-school season is here. You can’t miss it! Walking into stores we are bombarded with reminders of the season. I put together a list of a few of my back-to-school favorites.
I love to have my students write daily. The writer’s workshop is one way to encourage authentic writing. Journal prompts can also be fun for students. I have two ways that I try to incorporate journal prompts into my classroom.
We spend time as a class setting up our writing folders. I like to involve my students, so they know what is included and how to use them. We use them so much and first graders feel so important have a writing folder.
