Magic Writer’s Newsletter-October 2014

This newsletter is for children and their parents. Each month I will publish my Magic Writer’s newsletter. Included in this newsletter will be an activity, a coloring page, and Book recommendations. Starting in November , I will include book recommendations for the Tweens (ages 9-12). . I will also have a word for the month, and a writing activity. I would love to have the children’s writing and any drawings that go with it sent to me at .I will post these stories on my website and /or on this blog. My purpose in doing this is to encourage children to write and to share their writing. There are many steps to the writing process. Each newsletter will highlight a step in the writing process.
Join me in encouraging our children to explore the magical world of books and to let their imagination soar!October 2014-newsletter for magic writier-Revised #2 (Autosaved)#4

Out My Window

Everyday as I look out my window, I am amazed by the vast array of shows put on by nature. Today the wind is blowing, howling through the trees, while the Spanish moss swings freely from the branches of the old oak tree. The only thing not moving is the bird. This bird is called a white Ibis. What an unusual name! Who thinks up these names?  The questions begin and my mind begins to spin. There is a story here. I feel it. So the creative process begins. This female, smaller than her counterpart , the male, is listening for the sounds of danger.  Iris, my name for this female Ibis, is hungry , but must be cautious.  Alex, the seven foot alligator, might be near by. 

Well, you get the idea. Ideas for writing are everywhere, even out your window.
