Kelly asked about plan boxes. Since I happen to have one of my student’s old notebooks at my apartment this evening, I photographed six plan boxes to share with you. You can view them by clicking here (they’re stored on Flickr). I hope that having the visual of some of this student’s plan boxes will give anyone who’s wondering what “plan boxes” are all about a better idea.
I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade 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).
