writer’s notebook share.

Yesterday in Teresa Zurcher’s third grade classroom students were personalizing their writer’s notebooks. I love how much I learned about kids simply by chatting with them about the stuff they were putting on their notebooks. As an end-of-workshop share, Teresa had everyone put their writer’s notebooks on their desks and then they walked around to look at each others. I loved the oooo’s and ahhhh’s and the cool ideas and sweets that kept popping up around the room. Brilliant way to share, eh?

    My background is middle school too. 🙂 I usually used one day of workshop for decorating & then encouraged them to continue decorating as homework.

    I always had boxes filled with magazines they could peruse & cut photos, along with other decorations.

    It’s a favorite day of mine in workshop because you get to know so much about your students. Plus it gives opportunity for chatting while at the same time working.

    I’ll be looking forward to hearing how it goes.

    PS — I love how you referenced them as works of art.
