Welcome back to the Not So Wimpy Teacher podcast!
Do your students forget everything over winter break? I think that’s pretty normal for all of us.
You’re likely going to need to review classroom routines and procedures with them anyway, so there is no better time to refresh your writing instruction with them as well.
I want to chat about starting your writing instruction fresh in the New Year. A fresh start is exactly what I want this year. Does that sound good to you too?
Don’t worry about what happened before break because we’re leaving that in the past and taking this opportunity to start fresh.
Here’s to helping your students love writing!
Episode 88 Takeaways:
- Start fresh.
- Focus on procedures.
- Review things that might have been forgotten over the break.
- It’s okay to change up things that weren’t working.
- Get input on what’s working and what’s not from your students.
- Celebrate good times.
- Set writing goals.
I’m super excited to see how your students grow in writing this year. Don’t forget to grab the free writing prompts from the link below!
