As we are building routine it is really important that your students understand they are to write, write, write.
We have discussed
1. What is a small moment?
2. Writers think before they write
This led to brainstorming people, places, and heart topics
Tomorrow I am going to talk about how sometimes we come in with a story we must get down. My story is about what happened to me on Labor Day. I have my writing pieces written for the week, but I am revamping for the teachable moment at hand. Let's face it...we all have stories we MUST tell. Mine involves blood, stitches, and a trip to urgent care so I am sure it will spur several other stories.
