Why am I writing this over and over again?

After hearing about Janet Angelillo’s new book from Ruth, I went online and started reading the sample chapter. I started thinking about the fact that each and every day I write down what the kids need to bring to the minilesson on the board. Granted, there are changes to the list daily, but most of the time it’s pretty consistent. Hence, I decided to create the following chart, thanks to the inspiration I received from Angelillo, which I should’ve done months ago!

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).

  1. Thanks for sharing this with all of us. I especially liked seeing the photograph of the chart. I’m so glad that teachers like you are working with our wonderful children to promote literacy and academic independence. Be well!
