One of the key takeaways I took was a way to get students interested and engaged in writing. So I developed a superwriter incentive - where students that do super writing get to wear a superhero cape! We simply developed a writing criteria together for what the superwriter writer should have (things like capital letters, full stops, be interesting to read etc.), and then I choose which ones are picked! Simple!
Now I thought this year my Year 3s would find this babyish. So I didn't introduce it to them until this term. But as soon as I did, they have been lapping it up!! They love it! They have put so much effort into their writing this week, really make sure they are working on their goals, giving each other feedback and checking on their success criteria!
So if you're looking for a fun and easy way to get students engaged in writing, simply introduce the superwriter programme and watch them lap it up! They will love it just as much as mine have!
