Writing Workshop

Today was my first "real" Writing Workshop lesson.

I taught it and then...

I asked two of my students to share their work.



Can you hear the wheels spinning out of control yet?


One little girl shared this wonderful story about watching the sunset at the beach with her mom. Very nice.



Then came D's story:

"This is my cousin sitting on the toilet that is next to the dryer. She didn't notice anything while she was using the potty. Then my mom came in and used the potty and saw something weird and saw our cat was in the dryer. OUR CAT WAS DEAD! And his ears were melted in there."


Not kidding, this is the quietest and most attentive my kids have been in the ten days we've been in school.

You know, you really can't say anything when things like that come up, and they will! You just sort of move on. Capture the quiet I guess.
Do you ever wonder, "How does crap like that happen?"
