Here is another great update from Corbett & Dena Harrison ( They are offering some great slides for writing. Enjoy.

First of all, we have completed the entire set of 366 Sacred Writing Time slides, one for every day of the year, including Leap Day.  The set is now 100% complete.  It is a "finished product."  If you are one of our teacher-followers who paid for a "subscription" to these slides and all of their updates over the past two and a half years, you will have the final updated link sent to you by the end of the day; I want to edit the new July slides one more time for typos and punctuation errors before sending out the final link to ours subscribers.
So...if you ARE ALREADY a paid subscriber...and you don't receive the link later today (it's Tuesday), contact me tomorrow (Wednesday) at so we can figure out why the download link didn't come through using the PayPal e-mail address we currently have on file for you.
If you are NOT a subscriber but would like to be before the price for the 366 slides increases this Friday, use this link to investigate this product we offer at our site.
Check out this new link: I have a brand new page at my website dedicated to Sacred Writing Time--tricks, topics, techniques, student samples, teacher models.  I am determined to improve SWT in my own classroom this year (even though it's going quite well at present), and I want to have a place to freely share my newest discoveries and ideas.  Here is the new page dedicated to Sacred Writing Time at my website:
I always love feedback.  I hope everyone's summer is going well.

Here is July's writing lesson from Dena and Corbett Harrison. It is from their ning at : Enjoy!

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!

July's "Writing Lesson of the Month" is Posted

Remember Goofus & Gallant?  They serve as a "mentor text" for my Writing Lesson of the Month for July, which has been posted at my website:  I taught this lesson in the last few weeks of this past school year, and posting the student samples yesterday and today made me realize how much I already miss my kids.
I hope you'll notice the re-organization of my "Lesson of the Month Page." I am going to be posting three additional resources every month in addition to the lesson.  These new resources will be:
  1. A recent page I've added to my own writer's notebook...because I still want to encourage you to keep a notebook too!  It's not that hard, and your students will love that you're doing it alongside them.
  2. A really original vocabulary activity from one of my students...because I really believe my vocabulary "program" is encouraging creativity on a sophisticated level that the Common Core Standards Police could find no fault with.
  3. A favorite slide for the upcoming month from our Sacred Writing Time PowerPoints...because my kids and I love talking (and sometimes writing) about the information found on these simple conversation starters.
Everybody have a great Fourth of July!  Be safe!
