Writing a book????

My good friend and fellow science nerd, Sherrie, and I are seriously considering writing a book this summer. Our idea is based on this blog as well as my other blog - we want to provide a framework for managing a creative and engaging classroom for the Upper Grades. We are working on our ideas now, but are thinking about these general topics:

Relationship Building
Class Management
Engaging Activities to motivate our preteens
Cross Curriculum ideas and strategies
Notebooking in all subjects

We envision a VERY teacher friendly book - complete with resources. What are some topics you think are important for the Upper Grades???

We would love some suggestions to get our brains going...

  1. This might not apply to all, but Brain Breaks and incorporating movement into my class schedule are important to me as a 4th grade teacher. Behavior management would be another constantly-changing thing in my room. I think it's great that you're brave enough to do this. I think you will do wonderfully!
