Have students write a collaborative poem or story using Twitter, IM, Edmodo or Facebook. This way, authors can contribute one word, one line, or several paragraphs.

DAY 5: Rocket Writes a Story

Posted on December 17, 2012 in Literacy, News

Reading is my favorite leisure activity, but writing may be my second favorite so I was smitten by the new Rocket book by Tad Hills. As a teacher who loves to talk about writing and the teaching of writing, I cannot recommend Rocket Writes a Story with more enthusiasm. This sweet little book could be the centerpiece of a mini-lesson on generating topics.

Rocket Writes a Story

This irresistible sequel to the New York Times bestselling How Rocket Learned to Read is “a perfect choice to inspire new readers and writers,” according to a starred review from Kirkus Reviews.

Rocket loves books and he wants to make his own, but he can’t think of a story. Encouraged by the little yellow bird to look closely at the world around him for inspiration, Rocket sets out on a journey. Along the way he discovers small details that he has never noticed before, a timid baby owl who becomes his friend, and an idea for a story. This book is sure to appeal to kids, parents, teachers, and librarians.
