I am trying to get back into blogging and writing. Once again I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers challenge, I think that this is my 5th year. Last year I started the challenge and totally fell off the wagon after about a week. I never did get back on track. It has been almost a year since I have written anything for my blog, but it feels good to be back. I make my students write 3 times a week for 10 minutes. Ok, they are supposed to write for 10 minutes, but after several months, many of them still want to write a one-sentence answer and be done. This year, I have written with them and then we share our golden sentence. It has been a fun thing to do in class and an easy way to get to know them better. If I want my students to write more than I need to demonstrate and lead by example. Here is to rebooting my blog and writing more.
