When I decided to take my love for writing to a bigger audience, my students were overjoyed. In fact, it was their idea! Every Monday they'd come in eager to share what happened over the weekend. As I listened, I would purposely cut them off halfway through and say, "Oh my, I can't wait to hear the rest of your story! Do you mind writing it down? You can share with everyone at the end of the day."
It worked like a charm! Pretty soon everyone was on board to share their personal stories. All of this was the perfect setup for creating stories to use during Writers Workshop. From there, our love for writing grew. So I decided to share my favorite stories, about trips over the weekend and on vacations, with my little friends around the world!
