    Writing Assignment- Start by reading the book My Teacher's Secret Life by Stephen Krensky. Students then brainstorm about what their teacher's "secret life" might be, and create a circle map to include any ideas they have. They then create a flow map to create their story, drafting, peer conferencing, revising, editing, and illustrating. Wonderfully imaginative stories can then be put into a class book and saved by the teacher.

rainbow writing (did something similar to this with the alphabet when one of my nanny charges were in kindergarten --- except they picked the color traced the letter 3 times, said the letter name and sound(s), repeated with at least 4 other colors), so I love this for learning spelling words. Could make writing them so much more fun and exciting.

This gave me an idea for one of my favorite quotes: Take a picture of hands in family and hang under the quote: "Un homme est qu'il a fait, par ses mains voyons sa coeur." ( A man is what he has done, by his hands we see his heart.) -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
