May is Notebook Month
I am declaring May to be Notebook Month.
The month when we reconnect with the pages of our notebooks. That’s a primary goal for me this month. Get back to the notebook!
My students are reflecting and writing about themselves as notebook-ers this month because of an amazing opportunity! We…they…the sixth-graders are TAKING OVER Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s blog Sharing Our Notebooks.
They have signed up voluntarily to write a blog post for every single day in May. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Today I conferenced with every single writer (again) and checked their progress.
The excitement is contagious! They can’t wait! I love reading their thoughts on creating their notebook pages and their advice. My favorite part may be their author bios. These students are writers. They see themselves that way…they call themselves writers. We are all writers. My notebook is going to be busy this month…
