Back At It

Renewal… it’s my favorite part of working in schools.  Each year we get to start over with a clean slate.  And each year we get to get better at what we love doing.

Here then, are a few links to browse through with great ideas for the start of the year.

From one of my favorite blogs “Two Writing Teachers”- a link to many of their favorite posts on Back to School ideas.

There’s no need to choose between ‘building community’ and launching your reading and writing workshops.  The workshop structure is a perfect place for students to get to know one another though partner work, author’s chair, and sharing time at the end.    Check out this post that describes one way to create community through writer’s workshop.
