In the center square of our 10 different Writer's Notebook Bingo Cards (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Full-Set-Writers-Notebook-Bingo-Cards-2228372) there is a Common Core-inspired lesson that promotes deep thinking and/or writing across the curriculum. Here are some awesome examples from my students' amazing notebooks!
The next four images are samples inspired by our August Writer's Notebook Bingo Card's center square lesson: Giving Hands/Taking Hands. You can freely preview August and September's Bingo Cards here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Full-Set-Writers-Notebook-Bingo-Cards-2228372
