This is just great! Thanks Megan! I am going to add this to our weekly activities. I really appreciate that you ask us not to add to their work. I am a huge advocate to keeping children's art their art. Adults are too eager sometimes to make it "look" like what we want. It's all about the process like you said; just letting children experience learning instead of watching it.
We have science journals that we draw in before and after a science experiment.
I love teaching writing this way. I have seen amazing results. I too love allowing kids to keep ownership of their work. I am glad your adding it to your rotations. Kids love making books!
