Begin the New Year with the Writing Fix!

January will begin our fifth year of sending out monthly writing lessons.  If you haven't checked out our lesson archive (48 lessons now!) lately, you should.  Perhaps you'll find a new lesson to teach in 2011 that your students will love: http://www.unr.edu/educ/nnwp/Mini_Lesson_of_the_Month_Club.html#archive

But what I'm most impressed by right now is how we've grown from just two writer's notebook lessons in August to twenty-one as we head off for Winter Break!

Hopefully, it's not news that this school year we've labeled our "Year of Writer's Notebooks."  If you haven't initiated a writer's notebook expectation with your students yet, January is a perfect time to begin, what with the new year and all.  Spend some time between now and January looking over the lessons we've been posting; we bet you'll be inspired.
