SCATS 2012 Be a Writer Day 1.2Students share their three-minute quick-writes about themselves.

We are off to a fantastic start!  Today’s activities began with becoming a community of writers by learning all names of classmates — “zip, zap – can you name the person to your right and left?”  Other activities included: QTQs (Quick thinking questions), Smiley Face Tricks(writing tools published authors use), decorating the cover of the writer’s notebook, beginning a class novel, Last Book in the Universe, and beginning an autobiography for the class anthology. Wow! We accomplished so much in our three hours together. Thanks to the wonderful group of 10 campers.
