We learned that writers have a special spot to keep all of their ideas. We call our page a "jot page." We wrote all of our ideas on our jot pages. Some of the ideas were swimming, gymnastics, art, and karate. Then, we chose one to write about. If we were finished, then we could pick another idea to write about. If we were not finished, we are going to keep writing about it next writer's workshop.
Blog away! Please feel free to post a comment. Parents, students, and I can be authors. :)
