I read the cards to my students and showed them the different types of illustrations they could try out. I provided a template from a Lakeshore, Writing Center, and my students are able to write Postcards about places they have visited or would like to go. In addition to postcards there are samples of various other types of writing they can do during Daily 5: Writing.
The window shows choices and examples on both sides. When the students are sitting at the table outside of the window, they can see these ideas as well as when they are inside. Here is a list of the examples:
- card (birthday, thank-you, etc..)
- recipe, tree-map and sentences
- book or book cover
- friendly letter
Thanks for reading,
