I recently was contacted by Hameray Publishing to review their new Joy Cowley Collection. I have used Joy Cowley's work in my classroom for over a decade so I was thrilled for the opportunity to preview some of her newer work.
I decided to use these books (the two lower ones) with my Intervention group during our Interactive Writing session. Working for over a period of days, we used her work as a springboard for our writing.
During the course of our sessions, I was able to show this group much needed mechanic and grammar skills. More importantly, they learned that writers are passionate about their work. Each day, they looked forward to writing their story. We planned, revised and reread our work along the way.
I am excited to offer one of my Followers the chance to win a big book written by Joy Cowley to use in their classroom.
There's more! Go here to enter to win over $400 worth of Joy Cowley resources or better yet, nominate your favorite teacher.
