The Masked Writer Contest

Posted in fun events, grants, and writing

Who is the masked writer? Students send in their guesses via the Jackson Library Google Classroom. Thanks to @MedCityPlano and @PISDEF for library books to reinforce writing strategies! In the fall, I wrote a PISD Education Foundation Grant for library books to use as mentor writing texts. Then I taught a series of writing strategy lessons to grades 3-5 during their library time.  There were certain targeted writing skills they had to achieve in each piece. I chose a few papers for children to read while wearing a mask. (videos)  The other kids in the grade level guess as to who is behind the mask. Fun!
