If you're like me, you were extraordinarily moved by the "I wish my teacher knew..." movement and hashtag on Twitter. Thanks to Denver teacher Kyle Schwartz, many of us have begun to discover things that our students want us to know but have not before shared with us. This is a way to build and maintain a #ClassroomCommunity.

I created this writing center addition based upon Kyle Schwartz's original lesson; I take no credit for her idea, hashtags, or anything else -- that was all that amazing teacher's gift to our teaching community. I wanted to create a way for students to always be able to share what they need me to know, so this mini-pack was born.

Please read more about why I created this and how I implemented it on my blog.

Included in this pack:
- anchor chart/directions
- different box label templates
- "You've been heard." bracelet receipt
- illustration option (with and without sharing checklist)
- primary lines option (with and without sharing checklist)
- regular lines option (with and without sharing checklist)
- "Note from the Teacher" to write back

Versions of all of the above for #IWishMyCounselorKnew, #IWishMyColleaguesKnew, and #IWishMyAdminKnew so you can use this to open lines of communication between colleagues, and if you're an administrator, between you and your staff.

This will always be a freebie. Please share this freebie link with others so that they can experience it with their students.
