I allow students to "Write Around the Room" when we are doing our sloppy copies or rough drafts. We have assigned "special chairs" each week. I have a couch, bean bags, cute little chairs, and a bench. Those students can sit in their special chair with a little table or clipboard. Others can sit on carpet, at a table, use one of the stools (I have plenty for those who don't get a special chair), or sit at a desk. They can sit by a friend but not directly next to them. Give each other space for thoughts! I tell them to get comfortable and get their thoughts whirling!
|I love how this little guy tried to block himself from everyone else.|
Do you do anything different for this step of the writing process? Please share!
