I'm linking up with Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday.


Here goes...



What lengths do you go to to improve your students' writing? 
How do you get your kids to APPLY their knowledge and skills when writing?

  1. I love this! It is a great way to get them to think about what they are putting on the paper.

  2. Hilarious! :) I correct a lot of things from the very beginning of the year like "cause" and "mines". I have found that if I correct it from day one when students are speaking aloud, then they are less likely to write using those "non-words".

  3. My kids speak like they write (they are all ESOL so makes it a bit harder!!) so when they are getting a bit rediculous I start talking like them, only I exaggerate it a bit... It gets them laughing and then we can pick out what I was doing wrong. Writing is HARD!!!

  4. I usually have them read it aloud, or have a friend read it allowed. This helps them pick up errors because they can hear them. The slang is harder to remove.
