Writing on Wednesday ~ Writing “Out of the Box”

on June 25, 2014

You gotta Have This Book WOW

 

Here it is on my shelf in an “easy-to-get-to” place!

One of my favorite resources when I was teaching in the classroom was Marjorie Frank’s If You’re Trying To Teach Kids How To Write… you’ve gotta have this book!  The book has many wonderful “unconventional” ways to get kids to write. It helps teach children to value their writing, to edit, and to be creative. I never went through this book from cover to cover, but I did pull activities from it on many occasions.  It made writing fun. Maybe you need some fun in your own writing program or some ideas for summer writing. This book will help you think “out of the box.”  

It is full of helpful lists….

Many thanks, Margorie, for the memorable moments you inspired
in my classroom, and now, around my kitchen table.
