The Power of Our Writing
Today we read the story "The Pencil" by Allan Ahlberg as a start to our writing workshop. It is a story about a pencil who has the power to design and control his own world, because he is the writer and illustrator of the story. We related this back to how ultimately, we have the power as authors to make our writing the best it can be. We can create a world where we are anything we want to be, and anything can happen. There is so much excitement in writing! If you get a chance, you should really take a look at this book, it really is fantastic!
