Weekly Writer’s Notebook

 In Bare Book, Grades 1 - 5, Junior High School
Level: Grades 3-7
Originated by: Treetop Publishing


Writing is an important tool that students should practice regularly. By offering students a writer’s notebook and making writing prompts available for them, an educator can really inspire and help develop an important life skill.

Have your students write entries once a week for three weeks. On the fourth week develop one of the entries into a poem or short story. This process should be repeated for each month throughout the year, and at the end of the year each student can edit their final work to create an anthology of their writing.

Have your students edit and re-write their best pieces of writing into a Bare Book. This project will not only allow each students writing to develop on a weekly basis, but it will also provide a great keepsake and memory or your class.
