Hello, writers and teachers,
I trust you're all enjoying a fabulous summer break. We'll start getting ready for the school year by having a bit of fun with the parts of speech.
We'll begin by taking a close look at NOUNS. Read the following document, and then make a list of your favorite people, places, and things. Be specific! After that, make a list of ideas that are important in your life. (For example: love, peace, friendship). Create a colorful poster or a wordle (www.wordle.net) with your NOUNS.
NEWS!!! I started a companion blog to The Write Kitchen. It's titled The Write Town and contains examples of quirky writing exercises for writers of any age. Check it out! :) Also, I've added new book reviews to The Reading Café (I'll be adding more by the 7th of each month).

Talk to you later!
Lemonade stand, anyone?
