The Best Story - one of the first books read each year in Writer's Workshop. It's great for teaching where writer's get their ideas. In the end, the main character learns that the best story comes from your heart. After reading it, give each student a paper heart and they fill it with words/pictures of the things/people they love. I'm interested in looking at this book.

Love the spelling test 100% punchcard! Gotta love vistaprint! Really cute idea.

A great way to practice narrative writing. Read this book to the class. Brainstorm a list of all the things the snowmen did at night. Have students create their own activity. They write 3 paragraphs, developing the characters in the first, describing the snowman's activity and a problem faced in the second and solving the problem in the third. You can add an art element to this by having students design a snowman doing their nighttime activity.
