    my prompts are imaginative, or narrative or persuasive, or informational. I started with imaginative and narrative first. They loved it and really wanted to share with each other. I often use the informational to asses concepts that
    I recently taught. Through their writing I can tell if they got it and it is a perfect springboard into a conference (about more than writing sometimes). Recently, we responded to what I know about area and perimeter. After I read a book- "Under the Big Blue Sky" I asked them to describe a symbol that would represent the secret of life and tell me why they think so. This then turned into hanging mobiles. I will ask them what they like about math and what they dislike. What do they like about reading or what they don't like? If you could be an animal what would you be and why. Sometimes I time the writing response and other times I do not. It depends what I am hunting for. I let them know when it will be graded and what I am hunting for.
    Let me know if I can be of more help.
    I am pleased at what I am seeing this year.
