Hi, The girls are in my class are always sat in my writing area either writing lists of words, colouring or doing pencil sheets (which they love!). A few of my boys occasionally sit themselves down when it is quiet and also write. It is always stocked with colourings, plain paper, coloured paper and writing frames. There is plenty of writing around them to give them ideas too. However, I really want to encourage a few more of my boys (football crazy, like being on the go) to write. We have tried to encourage writing outside but have struggled. What do you do to get your boys to write? I have a few very high ability boys but most of the evidence is adult initiated. What can I put in the writing area to encourage them to write? Any help/advice/ideas would be great...I was thinking of a football box full of football pencils and writing sheets, but not sure if this would work or not.
