Routines Cycle 2: Writer’s Notebooks
Day 8: Starting a new notebook
Challenge: Create extra copies of lists, poems, quotations, guidelines, or other items that you insert into your students’ writer’s notebooks. Put these items into a folder so they’re ready to go when any student begins a new notebook during the school year.
Do you want to vary the items you insert into your students’ new notebooks from what you put in their notebooks in the fall?
Will you hold on to students’ notebooks once they finish each one or will you allow students to keep each completed notebook?
What do you think the benefits and detriments would be of each system?
