Stories in Your Head
Writing is simply stories in your head. I remember so well when Donald Davis uttered those profound words during a workshop. Young children are full of stories. There is so much going on in their heads. School, baseball games, football, soccer, cheerleading, friends, neighbors, and funny situations just to name a very few. If teachers can just tap into these stories by creating an easy transition from stories in the head to stories on paper. I wish someone had explained writing in these simple terms to me as a young child.
