We had a classroom situation we had to take care of last Tuesday at lunchtime. Therefore, my weekly Writing Circle didn’t meet. (I was happy they were disappointed since I felt disappointed too.) Hence, I’m leaving each student a reminder notice about Tuesday’s upcoming Writing Circle tomorrow.
I’m hoping we have a lot to celebrate at the end of the month.
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).
