Back in February, I wrote a blog post about how I use common children's toys during my writing workshop. The toys keep the students engaged in the lessons and their connections to these familiar objects help them remember the ideas and transfer that learning to the process of writing.
This 12-minute You Tube video brings some of those ideas "to life" for teachers who don't get a kick out of reading blog posts. If you'd like to see more detail though, you can check out the original blog post HERE.
Happy teaching! :)
