Quick Write & Emoji Memories: Disguising Writing Part 2


Listen to the full episode to hear two disguising writing routines:

Getting students to write and practice various literacy skills can be a daunting task, which is why I’ve loved coming up with different ways for disguising writing for students! Last week in Episode 134, I shared two creative writing routines and in today’s episode, I’ll be sharing two more writing routines for disguising writing. 

The two creative writing routines I’m showcasing are Quick Write and Emoji Memories. In the same format as last week, with each routine, I highlight the purpose, suggested time, general tips, examples, and ways to support or extend the routine. With each disguising writing routine, students are still practicing literacy skills, but with these two in particular, they’re given a choice in their writing!

Whether you’re implementing these routines at any point in the school year, they’re proven to be effective and efficient. By disguising writing with these routines, students are learning essential literacy skills that can be utilized with various genres and content areas. Stay turned to next week’s episode for the last two writing routines!

In this episode on disguising writing routines, I share:
  • Two writing routines that are engaging and enjoyable
  • Each routine’s purpose, suggested time, tips and support ideas 
  • How to get these routines implemented in a matter of minutes 
  • Helpful tips to continue this work in your classroom
  • Providing student choice to get students motivated and interested
