    Oh, Ralph Fletcher You do so much good work for the young writers of the world Why aren t you a better writer I don t mean to be unfairly hard on him I just often find myself reading his books and wanting to reorganize or edit them for him.There s definitely good stuff in here, and I LOVE that he writes FOR the young person In fact, I think I plan to use most of this as read aloud material over the course of the first weeks of school as we set up and start our writer s notebooks The interspersed [...]

    Many years ago, as a young child, the idea that I wanted to be a writer entered my mind So I bought this book in a tiny bookstore in my town which has since closed and it has gathered dust on my bookshelf Today I picked it up because I am procrastinating on my essay for history which is due when I get back to school.It is okay I d give it between two or three stars depending on how you look at it and whether or not you take into account the fact that it is written for younger children It offers [...]

    Great inspirational resource for keeping a writer s notebook Although beneficial to any person needing some motivation to write or simply understand the importance of writing down observations, etc which could turn into future writing pieces , this is a great teacher resource to inspire elementary students I ve already used it as a starting point for classroom Writer s Notebooks.

    It s a basic how to for keeping a writer s notebook Nothing extraordinary here What is a writer s notebook, anyway Let s start by talking what it s not A writer s notebook is not a diary It s not a reading journal in which your teacher tells you to summarize the main idea of a book, or write a letter to a character Record small details You can train yourself to notice the details around you Use all your senses You might write a line today that you don t use in a piece of writing for years Or, yo [...]

    Meh I much preferred How Writer s Work, also by Fletcher This one didn t seem to have as many practical suggestions or examples of student writing as How Writer s Work I also didn t think that the chapters were all that different from each other Each one just seemed like a cheerleader for keeping a notebook, without much additional substance.

    I m not a young writer any but I still found great worth in reading this book and others aimed at kids I wish this book had been around when I was a young writer or at least I wish I d read it when it was published it would have helped, I think I ve started a notebook of my own, beyond my list of ideas for stories that I normally keep I m jotting down unique thoughts and word patterns and strange sights I think it s helping me to see the world differently and remember instead of letting the thou [...]

    A Writer s Notebook was clearly written for children with exerts from children s writing journals I enjoyed some of the poems showing deep insight into human emotions What Ralph Fletcher shows through his short book is how joyous writing can be if one takes a few minutes to do so This book does not delve into the technical details of proper grammar, but is meant to encourage young people to write Even as an adult I gleamed an idea from this book I ll think I ll put to practice.

    A good little book, and a quick read Intended for young adult writers, and talks about the ways and uses for keeping a notebook of ideas, dreams, writing, etc as a seed for writing projects Much good stuff here for any age, and a good reminder for those of us who keep these kind of notebooks for why we do so.

    You have two choices in life you can dissolve into the mainstream or you can be distinct To be distinct, you must be different To be different, you must strive to be what no one else but you can be.I started a writer s notebook today so I gave the inspiration 4 stars.

    This book does inspire you to write

    Short and oh, so sweet.Exactly the inspiration i needed to restart my own notebook and get inspired to have my own class of kiddos keeping one.

    Anna
    I liked this book and think it has a lot of potential to get kids to understand how and why they should be descriptive in their writing The examples Fletcher gives are quite interesting and varied a lot of student generated samples as well as stuff written by professional writers and are pretty explicit in showing why creativity is so important in making writing interesting If kids or young adults read it they will definitely learn a lot from it About that IF I just mentioned My only concern ab [...]

    Ugh Writing It s so boring Those were the thoughts that ran through my head as I sat at my fifth grade desk at Cavett Elementary School Now, I couldn t think differently Writing doesn t have to be boring, or to a prompt Good writing is writing that comes from the heart And it all starts with a writer s notebook Writers are just like regular people, with one important differance Other people have daily thoughts and feelings but don t do much about it, but not writers Writers react, and writers n [...]

    A well written how to book specifically aimed for young student writers seems to be the intended audience for this Ralph Fletcher book However, even adult will be intrigued with this guidebook on the writer s notebook Fletcher opens up this text by providing a definition of this writing tool This writing tool allows the writer to develop their observational skills, their brainstorming ability, as well as their writing skills through sensory writing I particularly enjoyed Fletcher s strategy on t [...]

    7 30 12 This book was approachable and useful for multiple audiences teacher of writing, child writer, and adult writer I definitely read it with two brains, teacher and writer I think that Fletcher really intended his audience to be kids, however, I read it as a teacher, looking for ways to deepen and expand my fourth grade students repertoire with their Writing Notebooks.I did highlight make cover notes about pages I wanted to reference when planning lessons In addition, I kept my own fledglin [...]

    Keep your On Writing and Writing Down the Bones This book has done for me and my desire to write than those books ever did.This is a simply book geared toward young writers, explaining how to keep a writer s notebook It had a chapter for each idea lists, memories, pieces of dialogue It provided examples from other young writers It had comments from published authors about how the writer s notebook worked for them This was a wonderful book If I were still an English teacher, I would have used th [...]

    A small but effective little book that stresses the importance of, and provides simple strategies for, using and maintaining writers notebooks from an early age The book is basically targeted at young writers and or teachers or even parents of kiddos between about 2nd through 6th grades, though I did do a class book study with a 7th grade Writing Enrichment group using this text and the students responded very positively to most of it I used it in my RDG 3320 class as a jumping off text this yea [...]

    I started this book when I was really young, and a couple times over the years I found it again and started it over This year I found it again, but I had read the beginning so many times that I recognized everything it said, so I skipped to roughly where I had stopped the other times and began there I still read a bit from where I had read multiple times This last summer I made a goal to finish it, so I did It was a good book, but I think that the main idea could have been gotten across in a sim [...]

    What I learned in this book is that the most and principle thing that you need to be a good writer is write the things that impress yourself, special things because also throught this notebook you can express your feelings sadness, happiness,etc Besides you can write on it whereever you are because you do not have a special time to write on it.This book can help you to summarize your long sentences into shorts lines that can be precise with the ideas that you wants to say in your notebook With t [...]

    Professional Book Worth ReadingIf you are a teacher of writing or a teacher who wishes to write, this book is a quick and motivating way to start Get your thoughts down, all of them With student and author examples of writing notebook passages, even the most reluctant writer will feel like they can write I rarely read through a professional book so quickly and take something from it to do immediately This book got me motivated to write and it will motivate your students to find the little things [...]

    I read this book as a follow up to reading Writing Workshop by the same author and was pleased to add to my arsenal of ideas for teaching writer s workshop Some of the ideas in this book are geared towards personal writer s notebooks, not audience driven writing that is produced in a classroom writer s workshop, but many of the ideas are applicable I plan on using some of the suggestions during writer s workshop with my 8th graders, particularly the parts about finding things to write about jus [...]

    Snatched a copy of this book at the Big Bad Wolf Warehouse Sale last October 2011 Even though it was meant for junior readers age 8 12 , I find the book to be interesting The font is big well, it was meant for kids and easy for my eyes It s all about keeping a notebook, if one plans to become a writer Having a notebook for a writer is equivalent to having a sketchbook for and artist The book further explains the use of keeping one which is quite different than having a diary.

    Victor Wong
    Great guide on starting a writer s notebook Even though the book is for people of all ages, I found the book useful to kids at elementry school Most of the given tips should be part of common sense , when actually taking a writer s notebook seriously.Notheless, still a great book I personally was a fan of Ralph Fletcher s book and would definetly recommend this book if you are just starting to taking writing seriously.

    Christine
    In this book, Fletcher talks writers notebook what it is, what it isn t, how to use it, how not to use it Very, very helpful information if you are considering starting using a writers notebook Fletcher s book is geared toward teachers of elementary middle grades but don t let that stop you from reading this even if you re not in the target audience It is a quick, easy, but worthwhile read.

    Susan
    Well, since i like to write a lot i thought this book helped me release my inner thoughts It teaches you to think of the special important memories that served as a purpose in your life that makes you who you are today I learned that to truly be a writer is to absorb all the ideas and put them on paper, that way you can refer back to whenever you want I believe this is very good reference for anyone who could express their feelings on paper.

    Charlie
    Not as good as the other writing books I ve read by him I don t like how he has so much of other people s work I mean, it s great to see how different people write, but not as most of the book He puts a lot of poetry in there as well, which I hate I ve never gotten into poetry anyway, but the poems he puts in there aren t good at all That includes his Some parts of this book are great though.

    Robyn Groth
    I read this with my 10 year old son Though he has yet to make a daily practice of his writing, he enjoyed going out on an observation walk and playing this looks like that, and he really liked going to cafes and listening in on people s conversations, trying to hear good snatches of dialogue to write down.
