Writing Wednesday-Tips, Tricks and All the Rest

Hi Everyone!

Sorry...It has been awhile since I have posted!  June has been absolutely CRAZZZYYY, but I am glad to say that I am officially on summer break! Woo hoo! I can't wait to just lazy around my backyard and enjoy fun explorations with my 6-year-old. I hope your summer is off to a wonderful start!

Lit with Lyns is hosting this fun and educational "Writing Wednesday" blog post!  Every Wednesday, you will be able to find some fun tips and tricks that I have explored when teaching my students writing.

One of my successes with teaching my students writing is teaching the funny, yet creative, acronyms when it comes to memorizing an introduction and a body paragraph. For the introduction, I teach them the acronym, "Give the toddler the cookie".  These are the five components of how I teach the introduction paragraph-Grabber, To explain (elaborate on the grabber), T.A.G and the Thesis Statement, Concluding Sentence.  Crazy enough, it works! I drill it into their head at the beginning of the year, and all year long we continuously recite this silly acronym.  It truly helps them understand the parts of the introduction.

I do the same with the body paragraph, only with the acronym, TALES.  TALES stands for-Topic Sentence, Add an Example, Lift a Line/Citation, Elaborate, Sum it Up.

If you would like to check out some of my writing maps with these fun acronyms, check them out at my Teachers Pay Teachers store! Click on the image!

Thank you so much!

Hi Everyone!

I had so many wonderful things happening this week that I wanted to share with you.

Today, I had the chance to meet up with some wonderful Teacher-Authors of Teacher Pay Teachers for the New York-New Jersey Meet Up.  We had a wonderful time together, and we met at a really cute restaurant in Brooklyn, NY.

Here was our schedule:
