Thank you for stopping by to check out this week's Writing Round-Up! The long, lazy days of summer are the perfect time for your own writing. Taking advantage of this time will provide you with a plethora of writing examples to share with your students come fall. We hope you find some ideas here to help you along your way!
In this guest post on Two Writing Teachers, Katie Gordon shares how to use summer to set writing goals, find an audience, and set a schedule for writing.
Don't know what to write about? Todd Finley from Edutopia shares 50 Writing Prompts for All Grade Levels that can get you started. (And these aren't just for students....)
We love, love, love this post from author/illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi that shares how she keeps track of her participation in the #BookADay summer reading challenge. Why not write about your summer reading in your own reading log in a way that is creative and fun? Debbie will show you how!
Author and writing mentor Ralph Fletcher shares how he uses his writer's notebook as a place to collect the "stuff" of life in this Writing Masters post from Heinemann. As you go about your summer days, why not capture some of your stuff (observations, sketches, anecdotes, etc.) in your own notebook?
Every Sunday, the Writing Round-Up shares a few of our favorite finds about teaching writing and other topics of interest to writing teachers.
