We have had a busy two days! Yesterday started our ongoing Writer's Notebooks by designing and decorating the covers. Students will be working in these notebooks all year, so they were asked to make the cover fun and interesting... just like them! Today we started some of the idea pages of the book. These are pages that students can use throughout the year, just in case they develop writer's block! Today we completed an Authority List, where students write about things they know a lot about, a Heart Map, where students write about what they love, and an Ideas for Writing page, with some ideas we already have that the would like to write about in this notebook. We will be continuing to set up this notebook next week.
