    This is great! Thanks so much!

    To organize our writing, we use the number notes from The Write Tools by Alice Greiner. I blogged about it in this post. She is a fabulous presenter if you ever get the chance to see her.

    The recipe card is just great! I will be incorporating it into my class for sure.

    On a side note, we finished the Thanksgiving dinner response to lit and my kids got so so into it! They were really thinking about who would sit where and it was a perfect way for them to respond to the story this week. Thanks again for that one!!

  4. I am in love with this! Those doodles are great, too- they remind me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid- my boys will love them πŸ™‚

    We have used Being a Writer curriculum for writing the past few years and I am missing the planning step. I am now going through and revamping my old planning units in the hope that it will help their writing pieces out πŸ™‚ It's so helpful for them (and me!)

    Thanks so much for these- this will definitely be a lesson when we get back!

    Thank you for sharing. Last year I used your original Recipe for Friendship for a writing activity in February. The kids loved it!

  6. Kristen- I am loving this! In fact I downloaded it and can't wait to incorporate it in January for my Student Council guidance lesson one week. Since I am also the Newspaper Advisor (on top of my other hats) we do a lot of writing every week and I use Inverted Pyramids, various Flippables and a Big Idea Graphic Organizer to gather thoughts and what not. Thankfully they have now (mostly) arrived at the point where they can choose their own graphic organizer to guide their writing! πŸ™‚

    We just did "Enemy Pie" last week! I will save these for next year, as always, you have perfected your art! I don't know if you know, but http://www.storylineonline.net has a free read aloud of the book, along with many others.

    Thanks for this!

    Kristen, I LOVE Enemy Pie!! I just found out about it this summer, and it was actually the very first book I read to my students this year! They loved it!! I just bought a couple more friendship/anti-bullying books that revolve around lunch time, so I think I may use this recipe writing them! Also, my kiddos make connections to Enemy Pie frequently, so I'm sure they would love coming back to it again! And I agree, the clipart is adorable!!
