Friday, Writing, and Testing, Oh My!
Happy 1st Friday of 2012!
Today did not feel like Friday, because of the shortened week. It always feels long and short altogether. We came back to school to do our district semester testing. My poor babies were falling asleep and one in full snore within 30 minutes of the test. (Oh My!) All upper level teachers know, this semester is the crack down semester because of the state testing. So what am I doing on this misplaced Friday, creating documents for writing prompts so my students will be wonderful writers.
I was stumped on how to word a writing prompt: think of a time when you were really angry about something. Then I remembered I had these Top 12 Video Writing Prompts, one in particular about Angry Birds. I wanted to share these awesome resources for writing.
I hope everyone has had a great week back with EXCITED kids ready to learn!
BTW- I think my theme for this week was videos, but I didn't realize it until now. LOL!
Enjoy your weekend!
