Routines Cycle 3: Publishing Celebrations
Day 9: Community-based celebrations
Challenge: Plan to head into the community to celebrate your students’ writing. Locate and confirm a venue at least a month in advance. Notify your students and their families about the location and date as soon as you secure it so they can plan to attend. Make sure to put a start and end time on the invitation and request that families stay for the duration of the celebration rather than drop off and pick up their child.
How will your preparations for an out-of-school publishing party differ from an in-school celebration?
Plan for the flow of the publishing celebration just as you would if it were in your classroom. Will you allos time for students to mingle with one another or will you get right down to business? Think about the sharing format you will use.
