For those SF Bay Area folks---
The Bay Area Writing Project is a dynamic organization located in the Bay Area. They are a great resource to both teachers and families in the Bay.
Does your 4-9th grade child love to write? Consider registering him/her for a Summer 2011 Young Writers' Camps. These 3 week camps are located in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. Check it out! Has your child already attended a BAWP camp? Write a comment below to and share your experience with the camp. If interested, hurry to register your child!
Unfortunately, the registration for BAWP's 2011 Summer Institute for teachers is closed (Maybe they are flexible??). This is an amazing opportunity. I have had several friends attend the seminars and the summer institute and it is always an enriching professional development. Keep BAWP on your radar, because they also have Saturday Seminars for Teachers throughout the school year.
Write a comment below to share your experience with BAWP.
Hi friends! This blog is for teachers and families- all for the sheer joy of literacy. When we are enthusiastic about reading and writing our students and our own kids become excited to read and write. I hope that we all can be models for those in our care- how did you show your passion for reading, writing, learning, language, or words today?? It's in those small, daily moments that we teach kids to love literacy.
