7th grader Ethan's TV show-inspired notebook page has won him a "Mr. Stick of the Year" writer's notebook award. There are actually SEVEN "TV show" panels that can be changed interactively to fit inside the TV screen frame he created, so you can change the channels with this notebook page! Use this link to see all seven panels: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/450852612669433006/
My wonderful 7th grader Mackenzie wins one of my ten "Mr. Stick of the Year" writer's notebook awards with this charming little story about the diabolical thievery of the world's mustaches. THANKS, Mackenzie...your creativity is amazing. Check out my Mr. Stick resources at my website: http://corbettharrison.com/Mr_Stick.html
Anna--one of my 7th graders--takes home one of my ten "Mr. Stick of the Year" writer's notebook awards for this two-page spread that honors the "Stick of the Century!" I love the acceptance speech and Stick Taylor L.'s abs, Anna, and I will miss your creativity next year.

Top Ten Lists! If you have enough of an opinion about a topic that you can make a David Letterman-like Top Ten List, then you have a great idea for a writer's notebook page. Here 8th grader Austin made a Top Ten List based on information he'd acquired about me through stories and through his persistent questions.

6th grader Donovan wins one of my ten "Mr. Stick of the Year" notebook awards with this illustrated, on-going story he's been working on. It's written in pencil, so it's a bit hard to read, but you can zoom in if you click on the image! THANKS, Donovan, for keeping such a wonderful, bacon-inspired writer's notebook all year.
Since it didn't really use a stickman (or stick woman), I could only award 8th grader--Mimi--an 'honorable mention' this year for this sequel to her prize-winning Barbie-themed page she made as a sweet and much more innocent 6th grader: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/450852612665854241/ It's fascinating to me how their senses of humor become a bit racier as they mature. I'll miss you next year, Mimi! I truly will.
Our graders have a special category in the "Mr. Stick of the Year" contest…
grader Susy wins one of my ten "Mr. Stick of the Year" awards with this entry she's been working on during the last month of school. Susy says, "Read the right-hand page first." I love that she is remembering the school year through music. THANKS, SUSY!
AND THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER IS...8th grader Jacie must have spent hours polishing this entry for our annual "Mr Stick of the Year" writer's notebook contest. Jacie is reflecting on her school year here, and she is paying tribute to me and the other four teachers on our team who have loved having her as our student. I will make sure her other teachers end up with a color copy of this beautiful page from a beautiful writer and a beautiful thinker. Thanks, Jacie. We will miss you too. :-)
