Pinterest • The world’s catalog of ideas

Perfect for a writing center! Used spiral notebooks as topic journals that the whole class could contribute to. So, for example, in the "Ouch!" notebook, everyone would write about and/or respond to what others had written about a time they got hurt. Kind of like a blog... but not on the computer! One child writes in a notebook during a session, so again this is similar to Read to Self in that it is a "Write by yourself" time.
