Blogging Break, but Write the Room October is Here!

Can you tell school is back into full swing?! I tried squeezing in some mini blog posts the other week, but this week, not so much luck. I was even hoping to have this October Write the Room posted by last weekend, but that didn't happen either! I might be pushing it close, but at least it is in fact posted before it's officially October!

Despite my lack of blogging here recently, I'm at least generating a list of blog post IDEAS that I hope to start getting into once the school year settles down a little bit. I've written six 18 page (or more) IEPs since the beginning of the month and I'm a little pooped!

Okay, enough with the pity party Erin, they don't care to hear it, they've got their own problems! Right! Back to Write the Room!

I'm pretty excited about this one. The idea hit me not long after I finished up my August/September Write the Room and I thought it was pretty great. So last month you were coloring. This month you're going to be... DRAWING!

Sorry my spider looks like a football. That's what happens when you're holding the camera in your left hand with the timer on, and drawing through the lens with your right...

Don't freak out. I've tried to keep in simple. Not to mention that now's about the time you start (or maybe you've already started) encouraging your students to add more detail to their drawings, think carefully about their color choices (not that many people have purple and green hair-- we hope) etc.

For this, the recording sheet has already given the student half of the picture. As they walk around the room, when they find the picture, they need to draw the second half of it on their recording sheet. After they draw all 6 pictures, then they can also color them in.

I've included color pictures for you to hide around the room, like the one above in my example picture. OR black and white ones that you can color in yourself if you're trying to save on color ink. I know some of us don't even have access to color printer if we're printing and planning at school!

If you are interested in purchasing this, you can find it on TpT for $2.50 -OR- you can purchase the Bundle and get months January, February, March, April, May, August/Sept, and now Oct. Individually they would cost you $21.50, but as a bundle they'll cost you $12.50! Huge savings!

I have 2 more months to add to this bundle-- November and December, then it will be complete! If you have any suggestions for those 2 months, feel free to share your ideas! :)

Hi there are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated! economics tutor
