Word up!

6 Sep

I had a breakthrough! My Years 8 and 9 kids have finally started using the resources on the walls of my classroom!

Earlier in the year we worked together to create a series of glossaries that helped students to connect ideas/sentences together and also bolstered their analytical vocabulary.

Students have been engaging in independent writing.  During this process, they have been wandering around the room, using the glossaries on the wall to enhance the coherency and sophistication of their writing.
