I did this video after several conversations with families about how to help their child with journal writing/any writing. It is about 12 minutes long. It will be posted on our class web page as well, if you want to reference later/again.
I did this to try to answer some common questions. If it is too much, do what YOU CAN DO! My intent is to offer you all the support and you take what you can use, when you can use it. I will do another video later about "5 Star Writing" on how to help your child edit their work after writing.
Please let me know if there is something else I can tell you or clarify.
