...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!
A quiet weekend...Finished creating our Sacred Writing Time slides through June 15. Just need to edit them, and the project is finished. Always nice when a writing process comes to an end.
Here come this week's prompts.
Monday: ""What does a blank mind do? Find the blankest wall where you are (in can be just part of a wall, if need be) and stare at it for 5 to 10 uninterrupted minutes. Write about the thoughts that went through your head while you stared."
Tuesday: "What did he/she teach you? Write about a time you learned something from a best friend."
Wednesday: "Who (or what) touched you without making physical contact? Write about it."
Thursday: "Where's your telephoto lens? Write a piece that starts with a zoomed-in close-up on something, then slowly pulls back so the reader sees something different or unexpected."
Friday: "What did you want to hear? Imagine that many years ago you visited a fortune-teller, one who actually had some skill. Write what the fortune-teller said to you as he/she flipped the cards, glanced at your palm, studied your tea leaves, or whatever. Apply your writing to your present or future: your choice."
Saturday: "Why should they meet? Think of two relatives or two friends. Write about how they alike and how they are different in a poem or story (or whatever)."
Have a great week, writing/teaching friends.
