Small Moment Writing

Last week we finally finished our Small Moment writing unit. This comes from Lucy Calkin's "Units of Study for Primary Writing".


One of Lucy's suggestions is to have lots of writing celebrations.

So we did just that!

Each child stood beside me to read their story to the class which was projected onto our SmartBoard so everyone could see the words and beautiful illustrations.

After all the stories were read and applauded I served iced tea and chocolate chip cookies.

One of the little guys asked if we could "make a cheer with our glasses", so we did:)




If you haven't had a writing celebration yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. We had so much fun and I feel like it really boosted everyone's writing esteem.

Don't forget Beth Ann's giveaway.



Happy Writing!

  1. I LOVE this. I also loved seeing inside your classroom. I think Lucy Calkins' program is so great. It's easy to understand and put right into action. Will you share some of the writings with us?

  4. I love the clinking glasses! Today we had a celebration. It was smaller. But my friend made a "k" correctly and without any help! We did the "truck driver cheer." Happy evening!
