Life Lesson #1 (Beginning of the School Year)...

"Be Brave" by Sara Bareilles

*Today is the first day I'm introducing our "Life Lessons" to my class.

*Thursdays are one of my most favorite days of the writing week.

*We begin by watching the video.  After the video we talk about the message/theme/lesson.

*I then show the video again to the class.  

*The next step is for the writer's to spend 5-10 minutes writing about the video in their writer's notebook.  They can write anything they want related to the video/lesson/idea.

*The final aspect of this time is to have a few of the writers share what wrote.  

*This lesson of "Be Brave" carries us through the whole year and will be referred to often.
