...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!
Thanks for being some of the first teachers to join this new interest group, which is based on our Mentor Text of the Year for the 2011-12 school year: Show; Don't Tell by Josephine Nobisso.
This year's theme is teaching students to SHOW their writing even better. SHOWING is a skill that requires students to know more about idea development, voice, and word choice.
All of our lessons of the month this school year will focus on SHOWING and the three writing traits we associate with the skill.
Our first lesson inspired by Show; Don't Tell has just been posted. By being in this group, we are giving you a sneak preview of it: http://writingfix.com/Picture_Book_Prompts/Show-Dont-Tell1.htm
If you haven't purchased a copy of our Mentor Text of the Year, we hope this lesson inspires you to do so!
