At Miandetta, we do Writers Notebook.
Writers Notebook is my favourite subject at school, because in it, you can do whatever you please!
Well first of all, you must have a seed. Seeds are little souveniers that mean something to you, so when you write about them, you use very passionate words and you enjoy doing it. (You might have a different way of using them.)
Seeds can really be anything! From leaves to sharpeners to teddy bears!
Writers Notebook is when you have finished your Thinking Proformer (Word Webs, Y-charts etc,) You must choose what you are going to do with your seed. There is a rule in my class room, you can not ask the teacher about what you do, because you don’t need to. The answer is always going to be yes!
E.g Poem about seed, poster advertising seed, song about seed, cartoon about seed.
There is no limits!
I hope this info helped you understand a little about what Writers Notebook is. It could come in handy!
So I had a little catastrophy with my seed planning today. I forgot that if you don’t have a seed to write about, you must print one off the internet in the morning. I realized at the last minute that I needed to do that. So I quickly grabbed a computer and tried to turn it on. It wasn’t working. Then my best friend (she was next to me) offered to share hers. Life Saver! I copyed the photo I wanted and pasted it into Word. But as I went to print it, it only showed the Resource room and the 3-4 printer. I wasn’t allowed to go either places. So I looked around in my pencil case. I found a little watermelon rubber and sticky taped it into my book. Perfect! So now I’m doing a Y-chart on watermelon. Good enough! At least I didn’t get homework!
I’m thinking of doing a story about my seed. What do you think? Please tell me if there are any other cool things I can do! I’d love to hear them!
Also, if you do Writers Notebook at your school, (or classroom,) please tell me what your favourite thing to write about is!
Thank you for reading
P.S Is watermelons a word? It doesn’t sound right to me…
