This 1-2 week smart notebook writing project lets the students write about what is important about themselves and their life. It is great to do at the beginning of the year or Mother's and Father's Day. The Important Poem by Margaret Wise Brown is used to introduce this Important Poem about themselves. It will take the students through the writing process starting with brainstorming with a focus on revising using word choice. During the revision, we have a couple of lessons using descriptions with adjectives and focusing on using the exact word or noun that you mean. Besides the smart notebook, there is a power point and a word document which has an outline directions and any worksheets associated with all of lessons for the 7-10 days of this project.
