2020 OKWP Amazing Writing Race The Oklahoma Writing Project invites you to attend “The Amazing Writing Race.” This year participants will experience the animals through various writing activities and listening to zoo specialists. Each teacher may bring 5 students per adult, grades 1st-6th. Parents and student teachers are welcome, too. Spaces are limited please register today! Students and teachers will be challenged to write narrative, opinion or informative pieces while racing around the zoo looking for writing prompts. All writing activities will be aligned to Oklahoma Academic Standards Writing Standards.Oklahoma Writing Project Teacher Consultants will be placed at each writing challenge checkpoint to guide participants. Teachers will accompany their students as they race around the zoo attempting to complete all writing prompts. In the afternoon, everyone will attend a joint session to have a read around. Students and teachers will hear winners from the 2020 OWP Write to Win Writing Contest read aloud winning pieces. Come be a part of this exciting day! Students and teachers will need to bring a sack lunch. Due to all the writing prompts during the day, you will stop to eat lunch between writing challenges. (During March, many of the usual concession stands are closed at the zoo. Bringing your own sack lunch is recommended.) We will be outside all day, be sure to dress appropriately. Students and teachers may bring clipboards to assist with writing. If there is inclement  weather, you will receive an email by noon on Wednesday, March 25. Please make sure you supply a valid email address.
