There’s been a lot of tinkering in Writers’ Workshop since Writing Clinic #2! Truthfully, I wasn’t sure what to expect. In fact, I worried. Would students “get” it? What if they were *still* stumped for writing ideas? What if it got out of control? But over the past week, I’ve seen or heard about tinkering in three classrooms, and students have blown me away! They’ve been so respectful and CREATIVE in their builds! Now, I’m so eager to use tinkering throughout the writing process.
Here is this week’s roundup of literacy links for some quick inspiration, tips, and refreshment:
- Center’s Bedtime Read Alouds are coming back in 2020! Until then, check out our old Bedtime Read Alouds here or Brightly’s Storytime on Youtube to hear a fab story.
- December 9-13 is Graphic Novels Week! Use this resource from Scholastic.
- “Six Essential Acts of Kindness” from Two Writing Teachers and Mr. Rogers
- Mental health break: short film of the picture book, Hair Love
