Today I shared the SOL challenge with my 3rd graders. I told them how it works and showed them a couple of my post. I explained that I have to go through the whole writing process every day, edit, revise, add details, and so on. I also told them how scary it was for me to start writing and I was worried about what others might think.
I think they thought it was cool! They loved that I wrote about them. They said things like, "I like your opening, it really made me want to keep reading" and "You are brave just like Desperaux(our current read aloud)."
It was fun to share with them. I want my kids to know that I am not only a reader but also a writer, just like I want them to be!
