Great Support for Older Students!

I found that this book can provide a great writing scaffold for older students who are struggling writers. Often, students in 3rd grade and above who are emergent writers are embarassed to write, as their writing looks 'babyish' compared to their peers. Here's an idea I've used, with Making Big Books as a resource: Have your students create simple story lines that are used with patterned books for preschoolers, kindergartners, or primary special ed students. This has the benefits of: giving a sense of purpose to the activity; engaging students in a modification of "language experience" in which students write down their thoughts, then use those for reading. Remember the strong reading/writiing connection (Adams, 1990). Pattern books such as Making Big Books can help jump-start your students!
