As she came in, she wanted to know what lesson...immediately I knew!
Setting. But wait, they also need to know about moving in the writing process. And, it'd be helpful if you could talk about doing their best. Um, also, what about spreads? Can you also mix in details of setting? Um, setting. Doing their best. Ugh...what do you think?
She just laughs and then says, "You're not getting setting."
She taught about taking their planning and working on spreads and what that looks like as a writer.
I also had to confess to her that I had mixed three lessons on Friday. I know, I know, I know. You NEVER teach more than one thing. Unfortunately, with our short weeks until our vacation and knowing we had missed a school due to snow and another day due to music practice, I taught three lessons (with breaks in between).
I'm glad I didn't get setting. I am excited about teaching setting to my students tomorrow and looking at the details that are needed. We'll post some on our classroom blog.
I loved hearing the kids work today. You could hear the buzz of workshop. You could see writers working. You could see the wheels turning.
