Thank you, Erin. I would love to know what your students enjoyed about Mrs. Frisby and the rats of NIMH; I have actually never read that chapter book before. How did you get your boys excited about reading? Is there anything you would like to see me share here on Scholastic in the near future that you perhaps found helpful from my website?
This week's post- December 17, 2009's post- shares some writer's workshop links. Have you visited Writingfix.com, by the way? Corbett Harrison, the one who runs the website, has SEVERAL sensational lessons on there and is always seeking student examples. Is there something specific you see about your students' writing that is weak, or is it an overall weakness?
