A message from Corbett Harrison.
Hello, teachers and writers,
First of all, thanks for all the nice words that many have sent in about our October Vocabulary/Writing Lesson. I can tell you are delighting in the mentor text by James Tobin as much as I did. Remember the goal of the lesson: think of multiple contexts where they could apply the word and not only visually represent those contexts but also explain their visuals through writing.
If you own our full set of notebook Bingo Cards, I just wanted to let you know I have done some recent revisions to October's online "center-square lesson": Recipe Metaphors
Finally--if you're a user of Pinterest--please be sure to vote for your favorite of the four writer's notebook metaphors that we selected to be featured at the site this September. You must vote by October 31. All four of the submissions are creative and thoughtful, but one lucky student will win an Amazon Gift Card based on "likes," "repins," and "saves" at Pinterest. Here is the page you can access all four entries and vote from: http://writinglesson.ning.com/profiles/blogs/2016-s-best-writer-s-notebook-metaphors
