Today is a super quick post with one last thing I wanted to share. I also would love to answer any questions and comments you have about Writing Workshop – so please comment in the comments section!
Spotlight Bulletin Board
One thing I did this year was a spotlight section on my Writing Bulletin Board. The majority of my Writing Bulletin Board had writing anchor charts, but I saved a small section for a spotlight board. The spotlight board showcased student work that had excelled in the area we were focusing on. One of the first spotlight boards I used last year was for adding details. So I had a little page that said Spotlight On: Adding Details. Then, I would hang up a few student samples of kiddos who really had done a good job of focusing on that area. I liked this because it was a way to showcase student work. It also was a great motivator. Students wanted their work up there so they were more attentive to our specific focus. I also had spotlight boards for – word choice, using capital letters, using end marks, using commas, and more.
