Sun salutation for the mind

Time to write…

Please open your notebooks and start a list that answers the following question:


1) Where do writers get ideas?

Ready, go! You have one minute to write…

Shout-out your answers (in an orderly fashion, please!)


Next question:

2) What is prewriting?

One minute to answer in your notebook…

Shout-out your answers!


Okay, so…

3) Is there a difference between how you prewrite and how you tell your students to do it?

Think about this for a minute and then talk to the people around you for a couple of minutes…

Group share.


4) Finally, raise your hand and nod knowingly if you have ever heard a student say, “I have nothing to write about!”
