Good Writers write about what they know

I always kick off the year talking about what writers write about. 

Writers writers write about what they know and what they care about. You can see the little posters we made for both. 

When I worked on these little posters I did, I know about first. We talked about the different interest we have. I shared conversations I heard kids having that told me they knew a lot about something. 

For example, one day at Choice Time a child was looking at a shark book and another child started to share all of these facts they knew about sharks.


  1. The I know about and I care about make great charts! So helpful to the students.
