Weekly Wednesday Writing

Hello, Parents! You have the opportunity to participate in our Weekly Wednesday Writing!  Every Wednesday, your child will be taught a new writing strategy and will then apply what was learned during Writer's Workshop.  Their homework will be to share their writing with you. Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday Writing will always be due Monday. 

Please provide your child with feedback using the 3-2-1 Structure:  3 strengths, 2 areas of improvement, and 1 question you have. Your child should write down the feedback you have for them; a parent signature is also required. The feedback and signature should both be written in your child's writing notebook. 

We encourage you to write, too!  This is optional, of course, but if you choose to participate in the assignment your child may share your writing with our class. There is no "wrong way" to write and we LOVE when you are an active participant in our learning community!

Thank you!
