Presentation and publication of primary writing can be done easily, Writing is best celebrated by presenting it to others. When presenting writing, students learn and use important communication skills.
Students become more confident in the sharing process when they work on their writing and share it aloud regularly with their partners. However, sharing with friends and sharing in a larger group, like the class, are two different things.
For this reason, teachers like you may need to teach communication skills first. In this unit, you will find ideas and tips to do just that. Students will learn how to present writing so that others can hear and understand it. These techniques will also help your students get along with others in the school as they learn to recognize non-verbal communication as well. I have included some mini-communication posters to help you teach the concepts.
There are two mentor texts this month that allows students to look into the minds of an author. The first is Any Questions? by Marie-Louse Gay and the second one is How to Read a Story by Kate Messner. Both books are written by authors that are sharing some reading and writing tips. Students will love the friendly nature of these books. They will learn writing tips from a real author and ways that a book can be read aloud. There are activities to support these books that will help students to become more comfortable and confident in presenting their writing (and their other classroom work).
