Writing Workshop

Yesterday I did a workshop with fifth graders.

I love that - actually working with the kids and hearing their writing.

These particular kids were totally into it and produced some pretty amazing writing.

And check out those posters over my head. They are "book timelines": timelines of the kids' lives using significant books to mark various ages in their lives.

Then they write a short piece about each book, explaining why that particular book was important to them.

Cool, huh?
