I usually choose a few people each day to share something they've written and when sharing time is up there are moans and groans a plenty.
Some days we only have time for a quick share with a partner or partners.
Sharing is fun and powerful.
I created stickers that I give to the sharing child to put on that journal entry or writing piece. I keep them in a place where they are easy to grab . . . Could it be a plastic drawer with a cute label? Bingo!
After a while one dear child will usually go and grab me a sheet from the drawer as soon as I announce that is time for author's chair.
I print these on labels and voila! I keep a variety in the drawer with different graphics.
After an author shares, I write the date on a sticker and the child sticks it to their writing piece.
Students can quickly see if they've already shared a writing piece and decide to share a piece again if they've done some revisions to their piece.

Do you do anything for kids who share their writing? I'd love for you to share your ideas!
