MEANWHILE ... in Creative Writing class ...
We had such a blast with our SLAM poetry unit, these kids are for real incredibly talented writers and thinkers, I am constantly taken back and often even brought to tears by their passion, no joke.
Their SLAM performances were amazing, I only wish I could share them all on here for you to see.
Since I can't however, I WILL share with everyone the intro to our new MYSTERY writing unit :)
We began investigating detective stories and suspense triggers last week, and now the kiddos are off on their own mass creative writing task of developing murder mystery detective who dunnit stories, and I am super duper duper excited to read these ones!!!
And sometimes, when it comes to bringing out our most natural flowing writer trains of thought, we MUST connect a bit with nature ... so ...
we go outside to write and relax and let the creative juices FLOW!!!
