Paragraph Writing in 1st and 2nd Grade - The Brown Bag Teacher. Just a few months ago we welcomed our first-grade friends and they were able to write a few words and if we were lucky, a complete sentence.

Paragraph Writing in 1st and 2nd Grade - The Brown Bag Teacher

Since August we have worked oh-so-hard to develop interesting stories, taught our friends with how-to writing, and written letters to our favorite authors. Then comes the Spring and it’s time to embark on paragraph writing. One of the three main writing strands for 1st grade, our six-year old friends are expected to be able to introduce a topic, give and explain a detail, and then, wrap-up their thinking. In summary, 1st graders should be able to independently write a cohesive paragraph by the end of the year. So, the question is – how do we get our friends there?

La classe de Madame Valérie: Comment faire?

Ce type de texte est normalement apprécié des élèves, car il relève de leur vie courante, de ce qu'ils connaissent. Les marches à suivre servent à : décrire des routines, détailler comment faire une activité, faire une expérience ou une recette... C'est, selon moi, une bonne introduction aux textes de type informatif. Les élèves peuvent partir de leurs intérêts, de leur expertise et utiliser ces textes pour partager leurs connaissances et enseigner aux autres ou encore pour apprendre en lisant le texte des autres élèves. De plus, s'ils veulent éventuellement arriver à comprendre les étapes pour monter un meuble Ikéa, ou encore comment monter un barbecue, aussi bien les préparer dès maintenant!

Conferring with Writers is Like Coaching Skiers: Strength ID and Enhancement

During our instructor training, we were taught a technique called “strength identification and enhancement.” The concept is simple. You observe the skier and identify one very specific thing they are already doing well. Then, you coach them to build on their strength, and to use it to enhance their overall skiing ability. For example, let’s say a kid is leaning way back on his heels as he skis (which is not a great habit), but is really good at keeping his hands out in front (which is a good habit).

That’s strength i.d. and enhancement — for skiers. The same exact concept applies to writers. When we support something that a student is doing well (or at least hinting at), we can aim to: I often keep a little cheat sheet right next to me as I confer, to remind me not to skimp on the compliment.
