I enlisted myself for the preservation of my four students’ Slices of Life (i.e., the ones who completed all 31 March). I created a scrapbook for each of them. They decided if they’d be handmade or digital. Personally, I love the handmade ones (pictured here) since they allowed me to do more with embellishments, borders, etc. I cannot wait to give them to my kids when we return to school next week.
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).
