The Dot, by Peter Reynolds

The Dot by Peter Reynolds
A first for your first grader journal writing!  Before the children wrote independently, I read the children’s book, The Dot by Peter Reynolds.  Sometimes students are reluctant to write; many times their fear of misspelling keeps them from writing freely. I introduced this book before our guided writing lesson as a way to help children learn they can do anything, as long as they try.  For me, as a teacher, this book is a terrific reminder that we need to remain positive and provide constant encouragement for our young learners.
