This week we have started using our Writer’s Notebooks in class!
A Writer’s Notebook is a tool that is used to help students develop their writing skills.
This is how our Writer’s Notebooks work at Barwon Heads Primary School:
1. We generate ideas for writing on an Ideas Page. Ideas can be recorded at any opportunity.
2. We write short entries in our Writer’s Notebook to expand on our ideas.
3. Our entries can be about personal experiences, opinions and reactions.
4. We use our entries as a starting point to form the basis for our different writing pieces throughout the year.
All of the 3/4C students decorated their Writer’s Notebooks at home so they now represent the students’ individuality. They look fantastic!
