Author Share!


One of my favorite activities to get kids engaged in writing is "Author Share." My 3rd and 4th graders do Work on Writing all week, then on Fridays I conference with them and send them back for edits.  At the end of the period we all gather on the rug and whoever is reading can sit in my chair and share their stories.  It is an absolutely wonderful 15 minutes.  When they are done reading, the other students ask "Wh" questions, and I love it!
 This was a very early Author-Share (maybe even the first one!).  I quickly changed my lay-out to give them more leg-room.  What a fun and easy activity!

  1. I love sweet potato fries!! Did yours turn out crunchy? When we make our own they never turn out crunchy enough!

    I saw Les Mis...I really liked it, but it might be a little too long...I cried at least 3 times!

    Have a good weekend!

    1. Halle,

      They were crispy on the outside, but not super crunchy. I think it's how thick the cut is. I cried during the movie too!

  2. Sweet potato fries, hmmmmm, sound yummy!

    I saw Les Miserables last weekend and absolutely loved it! I actually bought M&Ms to eat during the show and forgot about them! You know it has to be good to distract me from chocolate!

  3. I'm afraid I can't see Les Mis in the theater-I've always been a fan of that show and may have to sing along! :) I like the idea of author sharing-I need to do more of that with my kiddos.

  4. I hope you enjoyed Les Mis. I saw it over the Christmas break and LOVED it!

    Sweet potato fries are super yummy. =)

    Be sure and add a follow box when you get the chance. Go to design at the top of your blog and then layout. Choose add a gadget and the follow box is the 9th choice. I'll stop by again so I can follow you. =)

    I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance.

    1. Heather,

      I did enjoy the movie! I've been humming On My Own for 24 hours!

      I think I figured out the follow box- I had to create an independent email. Thanks for the tip! I really appreciate it. I am coming to check out your blog now!
