up an old pair of shoes from a thrift store and glue buttons or
brightly colored sequins all over them. You may also want to spray
paint them silver or gold to make them truly unique! Tell your
students that these shoes will be used only during your writing
time. When someone puts these shoes on, the shoes have the ability
to take your imagination away to far-off lands to experience some
magical adventures! Say, "Where will these shoes take you?
Only you will know once you place them on your feet and begin
to WRITE!" You'll want to be sure that the shoes are large
enough in size so that any student's foot can fit in them. Give
one student each day the opportunity to wear them, but do not
force the student to wear them if they don't have the desire to.
