Last week, I taught a minilesson that focused on ways we can publish our writing during this choice unit. Melanie Meehan was in our classroom at this time so she helped create a chart during the minilesson that visually reminds students of the publishing choices that best fit each genre/type of writing. During this minilesson, students had to think about and reflect on their type of writing, audience, and purpose, in order to choose which publication idea best fits their piece of writing.
Here are some photos of a few picture books that students have written using mentor texts that they chose:
Stay tuned for more photos and an update on how they shared their published writing with others!
Happy Writing! :)
