Another teacher wrote: Always Write: An Original Writer's Notebook Lesson from Corbett. One of the most amazing writing sites I've ever seen and explored! If I ever teach middle school or high school English again - this site will be a best friend!
Love all of this guy& Interactive Notebook Ideas. Love this idea- print questions for a story on a vertical strip. Students glue in Notebooks and answer questions in complete sentences to the side. The Middle School Mouth: Interactive Notebooks - Again
Writing about small moments.a Seed vs. a Watermelon anchor chart.there are a number of terrific writing anchor charts here, but this is my favorite! Kids always want to choose a topic that is just too big! This helps them narrow it down.
This sheet can be used as a reference for kids to use when stuck for something to write about, a fast finisher activity, a first week of school activity, or as a literacy center! Possible alternative to a heart map.
This would be a great poster for grade classrooms! It can help students continually understand the difference between editing and revising and what similarities they have as well! Great resource for the classroom walls!
