No More "I'm Done" - Jennifer Jacobson

I'm spending part of my summer
re-thinking the way my classroom works.
I'm not saying it's wrong
what I do.
I just want to make it better.
And helping my students
become better writers
is one of my goals.

I loved this book. 
It took things I knew
but sometimes have forgotten.
It broke things down
back to basics
and reminded me
that keeping it simple
is the way to go.

My Writer's Workshop
lacked fun last year.
I've already got some fun coloured paper
to get my year started.

Jacobson tells you her system
and provides some sample mini-lessons.
What I loved the most
were introductions to some great picture books
that I had forgotten about
or never heard of.
