Sacred Writing Time Slides! (Here are nine of my favorite slides from our SWT set)
Dena and I created nine-and-a-half months' worth of daily PowerPoint slides to inspire writing from our students who came to class "idea-less." Our kids now "freak out" if they walk in and the daily slide isn't displayed. We sell this set from our website to be able to keep our website free-to-use and advertisement-less. Here are some of our favorite slides from the set! If you wish to order and support our site, here is the link: http://corbettharrison.com/products.html#SWT
My Graders' made SWT slides for all my classes for the last six weeks of school this year! It was awesome. - Writing Lesson of the Month.
Here's the June 26th slide from my colleague Sue Gonyou's "Transitions in Time Slides," which were inspired by my SWT slides, but which accomplish a totally different and awesome purpose: Sue uses these as discussion prompts as she transitions from activity to activity in her very busy classroom. You can order the slides from Sue here: http://corbettharrison.com/Sue-Gonyou.htm
Here is 2 day's worth of writing from 7th grader Diana based on this SWT slide: Just so you know, the second day, which was spent coloring and decorating, was done on her own time. In-class SWT is always about the writing, and I usually don't allow coloring or drawing. Interested in our Sacred Writing Time slides? Link: http://corbettharrison.com/products.html#swt
Each SWT slide tells the students to "make their pencils dance" for ten minutes. Here, 7th grader Ashton defies that type of choreography, and yet her pencil indeed danced. Learn about sacred writing time here: http://corbettharrison.com/SWT.htm
