I’m teaching acrostic poetry to my students today. That fact, coupled with the present Word Up/One Little Word Challenge involving the word ONE, I decided to mesh the poetry and the OLW Challenge together.
This week Poetry Friday is being hosted at Sarah Reinhardt’s Blog. However, if you’re looking to get involved in a challenge of a different type, then head over to Bonnie’s Blog for the all-new Photo Fridays. This new challenge is one that Bonnie hopes will be a “great way to end the week by sharing a photo that moves you with the words that it inspires.”
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).
