This Writer’s Life: I AM WRITING ACTIVITY
The latest episode of This Writer’s Life with Danielle Davis is an “I Am Writing Activity”
inspired by the fabulous picture book WHAT I AM by Divya Srinivasan!
In the book, WHAT I AM, the main character lists all kinds of adjectives they are. So in this episode, kids are invited to do the same thing—list positive qualities that make them unique in “I Am” statements.
Next, they’ll turn them into “I Am A Writer” statements to explore and own not only their identities, but their identities as writers too! Because they are writers! These statements will be ready to dust off and read any time they need a reminder to motivate or cheer them up on their writing journeys.
Plus, creative advice from the author and illustrator of WHAT I AM
and other fantastic picture books: Divya Srinivasan!
How special is that?
Divya shares the way she uses her journal to record ideas—and how you can too!
There’s a free, printable PDF with the “I Am” activity right here.
