Right now, I have a handful of kids that I call the RUSHERS!!! They are constantly starting new stories and rushing to the next. In the past, students never checked in with me when starting a new story. I believe strongly in students making choices about starting, ending, and leaving books. I also think that for kindergarten rushing is age-appropriate.
How to help the rushers?
I am now making them do a Five Finger Planner sheet every time they want to start a new story! The child puts a detail/part of their story in the boxes and the lines tell how you felt. You see samples of the kid's work. This is a tool I plan to use with some children who need it.
