As a part of our writing program, we have been doing buddy writing. This is a lot of fun because it means you have a buddy to come up with ideas with. The buddies both have to take turns writing and helping each other.
We all wrote a story with the sentence starter: "As I walked through the forest I heard a noise behind me..."
We were focusing not only on the writing skills, but also the skills to work together with others by taking turns and negotiating ideas.
Come and have a look in our writing books to read our stories.
