I use this activity to build class community and writing fluency especially after a long summer break. The best times I have found to use this are the days when you return from an extended holiday when it is difficult to get the students attention, after Thanksgiving and the winter holiday breaks. This activity gives the students a chance to catchup and get back in the writing groove, they pass notes instead of texting or talking. You can also incorporate this into groupwork activities, when doing group work, I let tell the students switch to no talking/ they have to pass notes. I have found that this activity keeps them focused on their work and they tend to stay on task with less prompting from me during this type of group work.
