The kids had a great time yesterday decorating their writer's notebooks. They are now covered with pictures, stickers, and other mementos that will hopefully spark ideas and enthusiasm for writing. The students will use their notebooks to practice the writing genre we are working on. Currently we are beginning to write personal narratives. Each student will write many personal narratives in their notebook during this unit. At the same time, they will learn the mechanics of writing and also learn about the writing process. At the end of the unit, they will choose one story from their notebook to edit, revise, rewrite and publish. The notebooks will make great keepsakes at the end of the year!
