On Being a Writer… August 30, 2010

I can’t wait to share my writers’ notebook with my fourth grade students.  All of the writing I did over the summer will soon take on a new life as mini lessons in my classroom.  From my favorite writing entries to my silly wonderings and my genuine attempts at humor, the value of sharing my authentic pieces of writing with my students becomes one of the most valuable lessons I can teach.  For my students, they see me taking the kind of risks as a writer that I am asking them to take.  Sometimes, if I share a piece that is personal to me, it allows my students to feel empowered to write with a similar passion and emotion.  Writing is an expression of myself.  I want my students to feel that same connection with the pen.  I want my students to feel like writers!
