I had a very exciting experience today. Some of the boys in class could not stop writing. They wrote through snack break! I know this is a rare occurrence, so I asked myself, "What makes boys (in particular) want to do more schoolwork?" Inspiration. For writing class each of the students was given a unique picture. They were able to imagine a story about the picture. Today was only oral retelling, but the joy of creating had the boys writing when class was over. When some of the stories are finished, I will post them.
