    My 7th graders were analyzing the epistolary story "Ordeal by Cheque," (http://corbettharrison.com/documents/OrdealbyCheque.pdf) and 8th grader Patrick was intrigued by my essential question still on the whiteboard: "Who is Tony Spagoni?" Without evening knowing the story, he created this funny little one-page tribute that used Mr. Stick, so he earned a "Mr. Stick of the Week" award. Thanks for always making me laugh, Patrick!

Start the new school year off strong, especially with techniques that make your kids love their writer's notebooks. One of my best tricks is to teach them how to draw Mr. Stick in the first week of school, then challenge them to create a page that celebrates this iconic character; 7th grader Jordan is already off and running with the idea! Later on, Mr. Stick will keep visiting their notebooks pages! Mr. Stick resources are free at my website: corbettharrison.c...

6th grader Patrick, seeing how most of his buddies earned "Mr. Stick of the Week" awards since August, well, he took the challenge. Patrick and I are still focusing on strong details in his writing, but he took great pride in this page, and it's an excellent writing example for this young man. Patrick's friend (and main character) Max wrote a similar tribute to Patrick playing sports: www.pinterest.com...
