So, it’s that time of year 🙂 My favorite season for some great writer’s notebook lessons. I’ve said before that one of my favorite activities is writing Spooky Snapshots.
I’ve had several folks email me over the last few days asking if I had a good mentor for this. Typically, I draft a “mentor” in front of my students. This is always original and needs some revising to be considered “good.” Anyway, I can’t seem to remember to save my drafts along with some student samples, but I do have one that I wrote a few years back that I’ve used in a few different ways (in fact, parts may look familiar to you if you own my Lessons That Create Writers :):
