My class had a writing party!! So many students felt inadequate about writing and so, I decided to take butcher paper, oak tag, note cards, post its, blank paper, markers, fancy calligraphy pens, gel pens, pencils, chiseled markers, stickers, rich paper and many more items to have the party!! We brought mints, chewed gum and listened to soft music in order to put. Our minds in a free flowing place!! In kindergarten this really worked especially for this who thought "we can't write because we're just learning!" This encouraged my little friends to take risk and write without the usual inhibitions that come with writing!! Kid writing, letter writing, signs and picture writing all aided in a wonderful final product that we displayed for all to see!
