Throwback Birthday Post
I came across this lovely Throwback Thursday Linky Party so I thought I would-reintroduce my old post about birthdays. I'd like to highlight my free Birthday Folder on EdWorld to go along with that post, because this folder gives your children opportunities to write about their birthdays.
The new Common Core standards really emphasize writing, so I know that in 2013 I'm really going to be spending a great deal of energy helping my children to be brilliant, creative writers. I've definitely noticed that talking about birthdays is something that my students have always been really into, hence the idea of using this writing folder.
I'd love to hear your ideas about how you're going to get your students to write this year!
