    I just wanted to share my experience with this lesson. The success of any lesson plan depends on the presentation and customiziation to the students. My students’s response to this book was inspirational. The students took the lesson to a direction and level that had not been planned. Our shared writing was a see saw between teacher and student.
    I told the students that I wanted to say “Your are my energy” to my students. I then asked them to give me suggestions as to what I could be if they were my energy. After partners shared their thoughts with each other, a student responded that I should say that I was the gas station! The discussion and suggestions that followed were amazing. The students then decided on a special person to whom they would direct their see saw writing. Samples of their awesome writing will be posted on our class blog soon.

    I really was initially hunting for techniques for my blog site and located your blog post, “You Are My
    Miracle | The Teacher Think Tank”, do you mind if perhaps I really utilize a few of your suggestions?
    With thanks ,Ofelia
