In Writer's Workshop this week, we learned about adding words to our drawing. These words that we add to our drawings will help us to tell our stories. We discovered that labels give readers information about a picture, so we decided adding labels to our pictures would be good. But we had never done this before so we needed to practice. We practiced by putting labels on Mrs. Kurt! We decided which parts of Mrs. Kurt to label and Ms. Kieltyka wrote the words on post it notes.
Mrs. Kurt sure looked silly, but it really helped us to understand how useful labels are!
During our writing time, we worked on adding labels to our pictures. Some of us are even starting to write sentences to go with our drawings.
