More Planning for the National Day on Writing, 2012

Leave a comment

The plans continue to take shape for our National Day on Writing celebration in fourth grade this week.

We are receiving replies from teachers on our campus who intend to come to write with us and who are inviting us to come to read to them. The kids are so happy. This gives them a brand new reason to write, a brand new audience to write for…

We spent part of the morning designing paper  invitations to be sent out tomorrow. We listed all the basic parts of the invitation, and when we came to the Why section, Ashlyn had our answer: To inspire people everywhere to write.

So, tomorrow we will make little index card booklets that will serve as impromptu journals for guests. The children saw a sample and asked if they could design some covers. Well, yes.

We will start on our welcome banner,  think about a script for welcoming our guests, write another haiku or two. These are the days when I remember what it is that makes me keep coming back: kids who need someone cheering them on, kids who by their very excitement about the smallest decision to celebrate make me want to celebrate something every day.
