I usually put up butcher paper and let the kids write, but this year some of the writing got a little out of hand. We start the year with narratives, so I like the idea of doing the 6 word memoir and having the kids write their memoir on the paper. This might keep things a little more in control.
Here are a couple of links that might be helpful for this:
- Psych Central
- Smith Magazine
- Kelly Gallagher also talks about them as 6 Word Memoir Tweets in Write Like This
