Starting our Writer’s notebooks

Today in class we created our Writer’s Notebooks. We made the cover page with at least 6 things about us, avoiding using the terminology “my favorite” or “I like”…

I haven’t figured out how to flip these images, so as soon as I do, I’ll fix these!

Here is mine: cover.page

Then we did a free-write where we wrote down everything that we could talk about. We crossed out talk, and wrote “write about”:

Here is mine:

thing.i.can.write.about

Finally, we created a heart-map about small things that make us who we are today. We thought about people, places, and things you will find in  our hearts.
