Celebrating our Writing

We have been hard at work during Writer's Workshop. 

During our first five weeks of Kindergarten we focus on drawing.
During this unit we are:

learning about writer's workshop

using a variety of tools

developing on our fine motor skills

studying authors and illustrators and the creative choices they make

learning how to fill the white space

practicing drawing {lines, shapes, people, animals, buildings, and more!}

using details

adding speech bubbles

and more!!

I have done many drawing posts in the past, you can check them out here:

We capture many of our drawings from mini-lessons in our Doodles and Drawings book.
Find that here:

I updated this product over the summer - so there are 2 versions Funky and Kinder friendly. 
You can find more on that HERE

I was SO PROUD of my growing writers as they shared what they had learned with their guests at our 1st writing celebration.

They *ARE* listening, woohoo! 

We have been studying Mo Willems and we're totally bonkers about Pigeon. We've loved all of his books, especially Pigeon Needs a Bath and Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog.

We had a fun "Hot Dog Party" to celebrate our writing. It was LOVELY to see so many writers curled up with their families around our classroom. 

Here are some highlights from our drawing unit and our writing celebration:
