7th grader Ashley won an honorable mention in my "Stickman of the Year" writer's notebook contest I sponsor every year.  To enter, you have to have won one of my "Mr. Stick of the Week" awards I give out weekly to three or four students.  When you show students pages like this, many of them realize they could be (and SHOULD be) putting more effort into the ten minutes I give them to "sacred write" every class session. Feel free to show off any/all of the student samples I share at Pinterest.
