Pencils Poised for Action

A Writer's Notebook: Unlocking the Writer Within You
I love to read this book aloud to students close to the beginning of the school year.  As the students sit on the floor with their journals in their lap and their pencils poised for action, their eyes light up as Fletcher's words flow from the pages. This book uses great resources and examples to get students to think about writing and how to present it to others. Ralph Fletcher packs this invaluable book full of examples and lessons for any writer's workshop. Best part is that students love to listen to it and use the examples to perfect their own writing journals.  Ralph Fletcher has created a must-have for any writing teacher!
