I love working on collaborative writing projects with my primary learners! 🙂 It gives them a chance to learn to work with others and to give one another meaningful feedback on group project. I have a six step writing process in my classroom. Once the students have individually drafted their part of the writing, they get to add it to the team assignment. I will admit the first few times we did something like this, it took some time, but after Christmas…this stuff is a breeze and they get really into it. Each time we wrote in teams–or collaboratively–I did a few things with my kids to help them learn my expectations. Although the topics would change, the grading and the peer relationship expectations did not. Let’s jump into the five steps that I used with my littles.
