grader Austin won a "Mr. Stick of the Week" award in October!
Even though you don't need to name your character "Mr. Stick" if you are entering my "Mr. Stick of the Week" notebook page contest, a lot of my kids do. 7th grader Henry, for example, has many different adventures for "Mr. Stick" throughout his notebook. I think this one, involving Mr. Stick and a cat, is a nice example of a story that can be written in two ten-minute sessions of Sacred Writing Time.

7th grader Mason was my first "Mr. Stick of the Week" notebook winner for 2014. He assures me there will be a part two to this true story he is writing about. My Mr. Stick resources are online: http://corbettharrison.com/Mr_Stick.html
At home, 8th grader Josh "fancied up" his assigned "Normal or Nuts" write-up for his notebook, and he glued it in the day it was due. I gave him a "Notebook Award" for creating such a great page. Here is the article this notebook assignment was inspired by: http://www.rd.com/health/wellness/normal-or-nuts-2013/6/
Here is 2 day's worth of writing from 7th grader Diana based on this SWT slide: Just so you know, the second day, which was spent coloring and decorating, was done on her own time. In-class SWT is always about the writing, and I usually don't allow coloring or drawing. Interested in our Sacred Writing Time slides? Link: http://corbettharrison.com/products.html#swt
My man, Lucas, one of my energetic new 6th graders, decided to take home and decorate this list of four things he might choose to become someday, and I decided it was worth a "Mr. Stick of the Week" award. Keep on writing, Lucas! Mr Stick resources: http://corbettharrison.com/Mr_Stick.html
