Our district started an initiative called RAise Writing. It stands for
Support with Evidence
The goal is to have students use this strategy when answering a constructed response question.
Today, I asked the students, what is your favorite season? Here is our practice response:

We have the students go back and underline each part of their response with the corresponding color. This way they take ownership of their writing and make sure that they used each part.
They did a really good job with it today!
And for today's laugh of the day...
I have a pretty large room, so during Reader's Workshop I let the students choose any spot around the room to read...

Yep, squished on that small area. Cracks me up.
And guess what? I won the Classroom Decorating Contest!!
Thank you so so much to all who voted! I'm so excited!
