so important to teach sentence fluency to all writers! I am SUCH a stickler for editing and making sure writing SOUNDS good and fluid! (Maybe I should have been an English teacher instead...Haha)
writing, sentence variety, sentence length, Interesting for any writer, saved this for myself: This Sentence Has Five Words – Gary Provost
This is why I am not afraid to vary sentence length when I write. It is, also, why I am never afraid to start a sentence with 'and' or 'but. It helps to use various lengths, and more than that - it helps to let the sentences flow naturally. It is always good to remind yourself, as a writer, to not feel constrained by English 'rules'. They are there as a guideline, they are not there to imprison your creativity.

Teaching students to write long reading responses off of sticky notes-- they write the main idea and then expand it in their Reader's Notebook.
Teach readers to STOP-N-JOT on sticky notes while they read. When they’re ready, they stop reading and post their notes in their Reading Notebooks and elaborate on what they jotted. http://www.julieballew.com/A_Literate_Life/Readers_Notebook.html#15
Teaching students to write long reading response off of sticky note...includes an EDITABLE freebie! Wonderful!
Teaching students to write long reading response off of sticky note ...maybe use sticky as the main idea sentence and they give details or supporting details from that...

I think having a lesson on comma placement is very useful and practical. I was in honors the honors program from 7th grade through college and we never had lessons on grammar. The first time I had a lesson on how to use commas it changed the way I wrote. It finally made sense. I think there should be a greater focus on the basics of writing. Starting at the basics is a great idea for any subject, really.

Pictures like this always remind me of my sister. Her favorite movie when we were kids was Black Beauty. It also reminds me of helping my sister take care of the neighbor's horses in exchange for riding lessons. I knew how to ride a horse before I learned how to ride a bike. Personally, I find riding horses much more exhilarating.
