We are finishing our Small Moment stories this week. Some of my students are adding to their pictures. Others are still adding to their words. And others are revising and editing. Everyone should be ready to publish by Friday. I use a really simplistic chart in my classroom as a visual for the writing process. It reminds them of a stoplight. Writing is red- stop everything else and write! Revising and Editing is yellow- cautiously check over your writing. Publishing is green- It's almost time to let their writing go into the world for others to enjoy. I use the Status of the Class form below to keep a log of where students are in the writing process.
