Day 4: Choosing a Writer’s Notebook
Challenge: First, customize your own writer’s notebook. Share how you’ve personalized your writer’s notebook and then give students the opportunity to customize their writer’s notebooks. This can be as simple as pictures and names on the front cover or as elaborate as each student finding their own notebook style. As students customize their notebooks, encourage them to share the reasons for their choices with one another.
How did customizing your own writer’s notebook make you feel as a writer?
What did you learn about your students as they customized their writer’s notebooks?
How can you encourage students to share stories with you and with one another as they decorate their writer’s notebooks?
