Summarization Strategy called "the incredible shrinking notes".  Students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card.  Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card.  Finally, students are given the small card and must take the information from the medium sized card and condense it further onto the small card.  Great way for students to get to the main point/idea!

~*~ Apples of Your Eye! ~*~: Writers Notebook Organization!

The best organization of a Writer's Notebook I've found- plus, simple activities for starting writing off 'WRITE!' this school year! :)- I have done a very similar writers workshop notebook but love the tabs!

I love this site! Every-Day Edits - Daily paragraph with ten built-in errors of basic spelling, grammar, punctuation, or capitalization. Send students on a hunting expedition, then review the work with them. This daily exposure is sure to cement some very important skills as it lays the foundation for improving students' test scores.

Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.

Interactive Student Notebooks--so many GREAT ideas here! ... from Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher (blog)

Excellent way to explain paragraph structure

aligned with Common Core Writing Standards 1 & 2 - I would switch the roof and foundation. I think it makes more sense to build from the bottom up. The topic sentence should be the foundation and the closing sentence should protect your paragraph.

Write the answer in the middle of the board. Hand out post it notes for students to write questions that have that answer. Great to revise a topic or chapter of a book!

What is the Question?

This is an activity that is usually used in math class, but I think it also works really well as a revision tool! Simply write an answer on the board, students then write questions to match the answer.
