Using Writer's Eyes

If you haven't yet seen Mrs. Phippen's adorable Writer's Eye Glasses, you have got to check them out. This bulletin board is just too cute for words and one I knew I was going to have to "COPY."

So as soon as I got the chance, I started working on the posters to go with the giant glasses. In the meantime I also happened upon the oh so chic posters that Cara Carroll at the First Grade Parade created after being inspired by the same post. (Don't you just love her stuff?)

Anyway, mine are not so chic but they match my classroom colors and as you can see include our class mascot - froggy.

To HELP motivate my students to actually use these new posters and edit carefully, I gave them an actual pair of "WRITER'S EYE GLASSES (frames only of course), to wear during the editing process earlier this week. I have been saving my 3-D movie theater glasses for a few years and finally have a class set! I simply punched out the lenses.

My students looked so SMART in them and they actually took the editing phase very seriously when they were given these props! I only hope this "MAGIC" continues when the novelty wears off!

  7. I saw Mrs. Carroll's writer's eyes a while back and they are too cute. Yours are adorable too! I've made my own set to go with my bee theme and what I expect through the year from my writers. I'd like to post them on my blog, but don't want to step on your toes (or anyone else's either). Please let me know if you are okay with my "copying" you. peschaff@bresnan.net
