The Third Annual National Day on Writing is coming up on Thursday, October 20th, 2011. What will you do to celebrate the art of writing in your classroom next month?
For the National Day of Writing – my second graders and I will be doing a “writing marathon” where we will write all around our campus, we will write alone, with partners, small groups, and as a class. Last year their favorite part was writing on the benches that line the parking lot (go figure).
Ladies…you are “Versatile Bloggers”…check it out!
@Kelly: Awww, that’s so sweet. Thanks for sharing that with me. You made my day!
I’m a casual teacher but if I have a job, I’ll be talking about reading with all my students. I might even be able to read them an extract from my book if they’re interested enough. A yr 7 class asked me to read a bit form it once and they loved it. They’re fascinated when they discover you’re an author, so I’ll use that.
I just had to share my experience today. I attended the first meeting of the local Literacy Coaches Network in which I participate. One of my breakout sessions for the year is called Refining Writing Workshop via Mini Lessons and Conferring. Our Mentor Text … Day by Day!! I totally gloated by sharing how I had one of the authors, YOU, as a writing partner at the 2010 Institute. You and Ruth touched 30 educators with your words and wisdom today. Thank you!! Hope all is well.
