Yesterday I was listening to Nina’s podcast and she gave the writing prompt of looking out all the windows in your dwelling and to write about what you see from the one you were drawn to. She also suggested a character you were working on to look out a window and describe what they see.
I wrote in my notebook yesterday a few lines and drew a doodle in my notebook in response.
In true teacher fashion, I thought about what this would look like in my classroom. I imagined giving my kindergarteners a black line drawing of a window and anticipating what they would draw and then write about.
I would read them The Hello Goodbye Window and we would laugh and I would see how their writing and drawings would change.
I will save this for the fall with my new class but I wish I was doing this today and sharing pictures of their writing with this community.
