Writing Off A Word…. October 7, 2010

Posted by Nora in Uncategorized.

Writing off a word is a great strategy for young writers to use when trying to build stamina. The other day, my fourth grade class put the word IF at the top of a page in their writer’s notebooks. Then, they wrote – totally stream of consciousness for 10 minutes. (We’re working on growing that time to 20 or 30 minutes!)  The writing that came from that little word IF blew me out of the water. Really! It’s amazing what one little word can inspire.

 I snagged a few lines to share.  Enjoy.

If lightning touches fire…

If love could be held….

If frogs croaked butterflies…

If books never ended…

If valleys looked like rainbows…

If hugs cured diseases…
