Partnership Writing in action!
Who, what, where, when, and why project!
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful products you’ve created and for your continuous support and inspiration! I have learned so much from you!
We have been meeting once a month, since September, for our Brave Writer co-op with four other families. We have four girls doing Partnership Writing and six little ones doing Jot It Down. The main purpose of our gatherings is to provide an audience for one another, but we also play games or do some fun writing activities. So far, all the kids have worked on the same projects every month (each with their own topics, styles, etc.). We’ve also discussed doing “open mic” so the kids can share any other writing they’ve been doing, but we tweak and learn as we go.
Last month our older girls worked on the 5 Ws project from Partnership Writing…who, what, where, when, and why. One of the moms thought it would be fun for them to create a newspaper using their 5 Ws projects. They all got together one afternoon with their completed projects and put together their first issue of “Brave News.” Yes, they came up with the name themselves!
I hope this is not their last issue.
I’ll be in touch soon with what our little ones have been up to!
