This weekend I'm celebrating finding my mojo -
I decided to close my writing teaching resource. I decided to use the webs we created to collection information about guinea pigs which helped us understand our new class pet and create a planning sheet for student's to plan their own informational book. Their planning sheet included a spot to choose their page topics and a checklist for nonfiction features to include. I checked their plan and then I got busy talking to a student. When I looked up, I was a bit surprised and thrilled to see how engaged every student was. It was beautiful. It was purposeful. It was magic and my mojo was back.
My mojo includes teacher choice; taking curriculum standards/goals and finding a meaningful way to foster student learning with purpose.
