Made possible by a grant from EBEF and contributions from the Warnsdorfer PTA
Upper grade students mentored lower grade students in writing personal narratives.
Students looked forward to working with their mentors during Writer’s Workshop.
Mentor students did a fantastic job of teaching writing strategies to the younger students.
Using ELMO, students were able to project their writing “live” onto the SMARTboard during the workshop.
ELMO technology allowed students to display examples of strategies they used in their writing. This student is sharing the “hook” he developed with the help of his mentor.
Using ELMO, A proud student shows an example of using “sound” words.
Students were thrilled to use ELMO to display their very own writing as the “mentor text” for the workshop.
Warnsdorfer’s young authors published their personal narratives for the museum celebration.
November 23, 2010
