We had a very successful first week of school. It's going to be an exciting year! Today, we created our first entry in the Brainstorming section of our writer's notebooks: About the Author. The twist is that each student had a partner, swapped notebooks, and wrote an About the Author for the other person.
Next, each student received an index card and created a Cento poem (second entry) by writing down lines from other students' Found poems on their notebooks. In addition, an extra credit option was offered over the weekend (please see the Twitter post on the main website page).
Everyone, enjoy your weekends, and I will see you Monday!
