Writing Lesson of the Month Network

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!

Any great ideas for the first week of school?

I am going to begin with a scavenger hunt from my Kagan Training then get into my Skippy Jon Jones Unit.  Anyone have any exciting ideas to begin 2nd grade for kick off to writing!?

Read "The Important Book" and have them write one about themselves! First, do a class book together about why the class/grade/year is special to model the process. Then have them each write one. I've done this before, and it worked well.

Rita,  I know you posted this a couple of years ago, but would you please provide more details about your lesson?  It sounds like a wonderful way to start the year.   I am a 4th grade teacher in CA hoping to improve my writing instruction and implementing some of the WritingFix ideas and lessons. I'm working on stocking my classroom with a few good mentor texts to use with 6-Traits writing instruction.  Thx!

I love my "Giving Hands/Taking Hands" lesson for the first week of school: http://corbettharrison.com/lessons/Giving-Hands-and-Taking-Hands.htm

The year before, we did the "Presenting Me!" lesson: http://corbettharrison.com/lessons/Presenting-Me.htm

I hope those help.
