In my last entry on reading notebooks, I mentioned that it is important to create your own to use as a teaching tool. It should be mostly the books you are actually reading with a very limited selection of books at the student level.
Wilfrid lives next to a retirement home, and his favorite old person is 96-year-old Miss Nancy. Everyone says Miss Nancy has lost her memory, and despite the fact that Wilfrid doesn’t even know what a memory is, by accident he helps her find it.
Dorothy Caufield's insight:
I might use this at the beginning of the year to begin the Writer's Notebook. It is a sweet book about memories. This is a link to the book being read by an actor. I know I had this book at one time but I am not sure now where it is. This way I don't have to buy the book.
When I attended my first Becky Koesel training, she showed us her notebook and explained that she was already doing this for her own enjoyment long before she ever thought to use it as a teaching tool.
