Thursday’s the day I’m going to teach my kids how to create a plan box. I created this chart as a scaffold for visual learners who might not fully t internalize my “Here’s how to create a plan box spiel.”
I’m also zooming-in on two sample plan boxes, which are connected with this-coming Thursday’s lesson. To view more samples of plan boxes, click here.
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).
