Use Your Eyes To Revise

Hi Girlies!!!!

Okay, this post will serve a few different purposes.  First and foremost - I'm trying to talk my dear friend Barb into joining the blog world.  Why? Because she's one creative, sassy and tech savvy girl - and my blog (and you) need her...trust me.  So let's all chant together...BARRRB! BARRRB! BARRRB!

Second on the agenda...do you remember this post here?  Well, here's a cute little addition to the "Writer's Eye" called...wait for it...

Use Your Eyes To Revise!!!!!  How darn tootin' cute is that? (Thanks Barb - see, I told you we need you)  So you can use your eyes to edit AND revise.  I'm going to hold off until after my next unit before I ask my kiddos to revise (editing with a writer's eye and with our cute lil' glasses went SOOOOOO well)...but I'm so dang excited for it!!!!

In the meantime...I think I'll buy some cheapy joe plastic sunglasses for each kiddo for that big event and send home their paper ones with their packet of writing from the first unit of study so they can share how they work with their family.

  3. Love the "Use Your Eyes to Revise" idea! It's perfect since my kiddos and I are revising our narratives next week! Now, I need to go find some cheapo glasses!
