The importance of students writing and the time it takes to write something is to be celebrated. In Already Ready, it is discussed when and why we should celebrate writers. We need to nurture students as students–not just as writers. We need to celebrate the fact that the student is taking the time to write and actually writing. The fact that this child picked up a pencil today and thought, “Let’s do some writing today,” should be celebrated. We need to celebrate their comprehension, no matter how big or small, and on their use of grammar. Does their writing make sense? Are they thinking like a writer? And are we thinking like teachers? We are teaching students not just teaching the subject of writing.
