Immediate Implementation

THANK YOU!!! I am so thankful I came. You have no idea how much you have inspired and helped me. Thank you so much!

What I LOVE about it is that I came back from that workshop and have incorporated it EVERY SINGLE TIME we have written. We are reading Tom Sawyer with 7th grade right now and I have just introduced a very simple five sentence paragraph to them that includes a topic sentence, one chunk, and a concluding sentence. They have written some samples on giant sticky notes in groups. Eventually, I will have them doing it by themselves, but they aren’t quite there yet. Another thing they did was to write two sentences of commentary for a concrete detail that I wrote for them. Thanks!
