How Sweet it is!

2010 Spring Celebration / Writing Conference

for Elementary Students and Teachers

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

J. D. McCarty Center , 2002 East Robinson, Norman

Registration due April 23


The Oklahoma Writing Project invites elementary teachers and students to attend the annual Spring Celebration and Writing Conference May 4 at J. D. McCarty Center in Norman .  Each teacher may bring 5 students, grades K-6.  (Sorry, space limits us to no more than 5.)  Parents are welcome to attend the spring celebration at no charge.


After a quickwrite in the opening general session, students will choose two writing workshops appropriate for their grade level. All workshops will be presented by Oklahoma Writing Project Teacher Consultants. This year’s theme is “How Sweet it is!” Students will learn how to “sweeten” writing and strengthen writing skills.  Teachers will attend student workshops to observe OWP TCs demonstrating teaching techniques.  All teachers will receive 4.5 hours of staff development credit.


After lunch, a general session will offer students the chance to write and share with their teachers, followed by the Spring Celebration of winners of the 2010 OWP Writing Contest.

Winners and their teachers will receive a certificate and will read their winning pieces aloud in a readaround for the audience.  All participants will receive a copy of the 2010 OWP Anthology of Winning Writing.



Please pass along to teachers in your building!  Hope to see you there!!
