They’re publishing their books! They’re publishing their books!

My room was essentially controlled chaos today since my students began publishing their picture books. Paper cuttings were everywhere by the end of the day, as were markers, pens, pencils, and a myriad of other art supplies. I’m still at work (5:55 p.m.) since it took me awhile to straighten-up for tomorrow since there’s two more days of this madness during Writing Workshop time (only). I placed various papers and specialty supplies on our classroom’s coffee table table since the kids have everything else they need at their desks.
I am hoping tomorrow will be a little less chaotic. But, if it’s not, that will be okay too… it takes a lot of work to make a good picture book!!!

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).
