I’m THRILLED to be hosting an All-Ages Family Writing Night on Wednesday, December 11th from 6:00 to 7:30 in the Center School Community Room. I will run it as a Writers’ Workshop, so if you’ve ever wondered what that looks or feels like, you’ll get to experience it firsthand alongside Center cardinals!
In this workshop, families will craft a poem together based on George Ella Lyon’s poem, “Where I’m From” (listen to the author read her poem here!). After noticing the poem’s elements and modeling pre-writing and drafting with revision throughout, families will use the patterns and structure to craft a “Where We’re From” poem about their family. Teachers will be available to support families as they work through the writing process before we meet together at the end for the share. I have no doubt that every family will leave with new memories and a treasured keepsake.
If your family is interested in attending this event, please register here.
