Each year I sponsor a "Mr. Stick of the Year" contest. "Mr. Stick" is the technique I use to help my most artistically challenged students make their writer's notebooks more visual. The annual contest (which we do during the last three weeks of school) has become kind of a fun thing, with silly ribbons I give the kids who win, and with a grand prize now. On this board, I display some of the past winners so that you might see how amazing kids' notebook pages can become with the right incentive.

AND THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER IS...8th grader Jacie must have spent hours polishing this entry for our annual "Mr Stick of the Year" writer's notebook contest.  Jacie is reflecting on her school year here, and she is paying tribute to me and the other four teachers on our team who have loved having her as our student. I will make sure her other teachers end up with a color copy of this beautiful page from a beautiful writer and a beautiful thinker.  Thanks, Jacie.  We will miss you too.  :-) Writing Ideas, Creative Writing, 5th Grade Writing, Miss You Too, Color Copies, Writers Notebook, Teaching Writing, Granddaughters, Hands On Activities
