At Open House, I asked for parent volunteers to help during Writer's Workshop. Parents are a huge help in this step of Writer's Workshop. Fortunately, I have a parent coming in every single day of the week to help look at student writing so that we can move students on to the publishing stage of the writing process. As adults, we put words in students' Quick Word books that they circled in their writing so students have a resource to find their words. We also fix any other major things they missed in terms of capitalization and punctuation. Our adult fixes get done using green marker so they stand our to students when they publish. I, personally, look at all students' writing before it gets handed back to them so that I can record common errors that will eventually make for new writing goals for students.
At the end of our day today we had a visitor! Blake was Person of the Week because his birthday was on Monday. Today his mom brought in their 90 lb. puppy, Max!
