Routines Cycle 2: Writer’s Notebooks
Day 10: Sharing notebooks across grade levels
Challenge: Make plans with another classroom to share writer’s notebooks. Help students prepare by giving them time to practice talking about their work as a writer when using writer’s notebooks. Encourage them to talk beyond the ideas on the page and to tell more of the story or the thinking behind the story.
What are some issues that could arise during the share session?
How will you be proactive to prevent any problems?
How did sharing across grade levels help your students?
