I would also like to link up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesdays (my first one).
I would like to share with you how I'm doing my Reader's Notebooks. I bought spiral notebooks (for ten cents each). On the front, the children decorated this cover and I glued it on - because I am a wee bit uptight about the covers being straight and centred. (Click the cover to go to the Doodle Art Alley website to get the subject specific covers.)
Then we flipped the spiral notebooks upside down and I glued this on:
The beautiful background is from Covered in Glitter and Glue's Black and White Binder Covers, and the font is my new favourite - 'Hello Chalk Talk' - and it's available free from Jen at Hello Literacy. I wasn't sure how well it would work having the students flip the book but it has not been any problem at all! I think having the covers glued on really helps. On the Mentor Sentence side we are, of course, doing Jivey's awesome Mentor Sentence work. I had never even heard of Mentor Sentences before reading all of your blogs in the Spring, but I LOVE them! My favourite part is day 4. If you would like to learn more about Mentor Sentences, click here. I hope your day was as great as mine!
