Writing Lesson of the Month Network

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

Here's a special posting page for teachers who have subscribed to our "Common Core-Friendly Vocabulary & Writing Lessons," which you can read about online at my website:  http://corbettharrison.com/products.html#vocab

Here's an open invitation to teachers using my Vocabulary Collecting resources to photograph and share your students' best "Mr. Stick Vocabulary Cartoons."

As I explain to my wonderful students, a well-designed Mr. Stick Vocabulary Cartoon puts the vocabulary word they are collecting into an interesting context that can be captured in a simple cartoon.  In the caption or in the dialogue bubble, students must use the word well and correctly.  

If you have an awesome student-submitted "Mr. Stick Vocabulary Cartoon," I invite you to post it here in the reply box below.  I hope to create an amazing online collection of Mr. Stick cartoons from all over the country...and world...with this invitation.  Please share.

If you don't see the "Reply to This" box below this posting, be sure you have clicked on the "+Join Vocabulary Collectors" link in the upper right-hand corner of this screen.  

I look forward to helping you celebrate your writers by having a place to post their cartoons.  Please don't post last names, and please don't post any information about your students that might compromise their internet safety.  THANKS in advance.

Anna had fun with this "Mr. Stick cartoon" inspired by the word opportunist from Flowers for Algernon.

Lexxie, a seventh grader, made this Mr. Stick cartoon inspired by the word dumbfounded from Flowers for Algernon.    Thanks, Lexxie.

Cole found the word cynic in Flowers for Algernon and created this funny little cartoon.  Thanks, Cole.

6th grader Peter created a simple Mr. Stick cartoon with a great facial expression!

My 8th grader, Bill, has a great sense of humor; his Mr. Stick cartoons always are well-composed and make me smile.

8th grader Ryan (even though we just learned how to punctuate for the participle he missed in this Mr. Stick comic) did a great job with this word from E. A. Poe.

Christina Terranova said: I don't know what the subterfuge was in 6th grade Kevin's cartoon here, but I can see that it was very colorful and that it did work!

Our first week, we did two Mr. Stick cartoons to get our feet wet.  Here are two from one of my 7th graders.

Two more from another 7th grader.

Here is another one from a 7th grader.

Sixth grader Hannah did an excellent job with the word fracas and with this Mr. Stick Cartoon.

8th grader Serene did an elaborate Mr. Stick cartoon with the word motley.
