Hey all, I am having a bit of an internal struggle with my K writers. Most of them are doing wonderfully and really enjoying writing. I am so proud of their progress. The issue is mistakes and how to have them handle the fixes. I have previously banned erasers from the classroom as the kids become fixated on using them and therefore spend more time erasing than writing. But I have many kids in the class that are crossing out so much that their pages look horrendous and you can't read the stories. Do you let the children erase or cross out? Is there a time you can tell a child that the work isn't neat enough to read and they need to redo? Some kids couldn't handle that I don't think... so what is there to do?
