The teachers returned to their classrooms and launched writers’ notebooks.
Yesterday, a week later, we came back together for the second day of the training.
As you know, one of my favorite parts of my job is how I get to hear so many great ideas.
A couple of summers ago, Stacey wrote a post about ideas for introducing the writer’s notebook.
