Please Write in This Book am Kindle "Hello boys and girls, You have found this book! I hid it in the writer’s corner, hoping you would. During center time, you can choose to come to the writer’s corner and write in this journal. Write about anything you want. Leave it for other students to find and write in, too. I want you to “talk” to one another in these pages."And that’s just what the students in this class do…..Please write in this Book had me laughing out loud. These characters seemed so real, I almost imagined my own 3rd graders at the authors. Each entry, written in a different font for each student so the reader can easily identify who is writing, begins with the date and ends with the student’s name. What the students write next and what they consider to be controversial illustrations, and comments, had me anxious to read this book from cover to cover. They bicker, make fun of one other, question if they are using the book the way their teacher has indented, write narratives, and include things like “ Lizzy, I love your poem. And you picture. You are sooo talented….. P.S. I agree with you.” Classroom feuds are shared in an interesting format as their love for writing is captured, even if they don’t even know it. The students even included humorous pencil drawings, from doodles of hearts and smiley faces, to Tyrone with “mucus coming out of his honker.” The book ends with the class solving their problems and work together to write one big story. A final journal entry from the teacher lets them know how glad she was that they figured out how to work together, and since the book is out of pages she’ll have to get a new one!I think this book would be great to start your very own hidden writing center book, although I might start our own class journal first, then, share this one so the kids don’t get any ideas… A perfect mentor text to show voice, this text could be used in a 2-5th grade classroom. This book is sure to be a hit with the girls AND the boys!!. When a teacher leaves a blank book in the Writer s Corner for her students to find, with the instructions Please Write in this Book, she hopes it will encourage her students to talk to one another in its pages They do, and the result is an epic classroom battle..
