I started the "Think Like a Writer, Write Like a Writer" board after taking an author study course forever ago and have been collecting quotes ever since. After reading Katie Wood Ray's (I highly recommend it!) book The Writing Workshop:Working Through the Hard Parts (And They're All Hard Parts) I started tying the board in with my writing mini-lessons and conferring, and now I plan to use the What Can I Do? section as a place where my students can track their individual writing goals -- putting post-its on the board like they do for reading Cafe.
My board last year didn't look as pretty as I hope it will this year. I'm printing out my new version in fancier fonts with borders. Yipee!
I love this quote! and the font too. Thanks Kevin & Amanda!
I'm super excited about these and hope some of you other teacher bloggy friends can use these too. I'll send the first two commenters a copy. Don't forget to leave your e-mail address so I can get these to you.
