In the classroom we are learning and working hard on creating quality work. A lot of time in class has been spent on learning how to develop this skill. The students are starting to think about their writing and drawing skills before they start, their brains are getting trained to slow down and add details to their writing and drawings. One of the walls in our classroom is now dedicated to quality work. We reference this board many times throughout the day to remind ourselves of these skills.
Take a moment and read what we've declared what is quality work in our class. There is even three student work samples that I found in the student's work tablets from the 2nd quarter.
Look at this blog entry with your child and ask them to tell you about it.
You might want to ask: "What is quality work?" "Can you tell me something you do to make sure your work is quality work?" "If my writing and drawings are messy or done without details would that be quality work?" "How do you do your best in your tablet?"
|I hope this helps you understand the classroom expectations for writing in our class.|
