I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter. ~James Michener
Our revision unit started this week and we are so excited to use red pens! We looked at old writing from October and November. We noticed many mistakes! Children have learned through our mini lessons what revision is all about. One student defined revision as, "When you fix up your writing." We have started a list of things we can do when it is time to work. We are slowly adding new bullets to our list. To the left you can see that a student working on spelling. You can see that children are fixing the spelling of high frequency words and are adding the magic e when they hear the vowel say its name.
