Ruth and I are both fans of quotations. We even have an entire page devoted to quotes we love.
Lisa Meyer compiled a book entitled Quotes for Kids: Today’s Interpretations of Timeless Quotes Designed to Nurture the Young Spirit. It’s a bunch of interpretations of poignant quotes. My students have loved this book. One even used this book as a mentor text and wrote her own book of interpretations (of quotes) similar to the one Meyer published.
So, here’s this week’s Writer’s Notebook Wednesday Charge:
1. Visit our Quotations Page and find a quote you love OR reread a quote you love.
2. Think about it deeply.
3. Allow the quotation to inspire your writing on Wednesday.
4. Post your entry on your blog or in our comments section.
5. Link it with Mr. Linky on Wednesday.
Looking forward to reading your interpretations!
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).
