Writing: This week, students will be working on their stories with a fall setting. We are hoping to share them on October 31, and then send them home to share with you. Students are using the Writing Diamond to help them set up their stories. Students will then be given a chance to continue to work on their “choice” writing and to write and share poetry.
Writing and Technology:
Students are “publishing” their HOW TO writing using technology with support from Mrs. Lowney using an app called VOICE THREAD.
Students are currently doing some “choice” writing (ask your child what he or she has chosen to write), trying their hand at writing poetry, and soon our class will begin writing memoirs.
We’re reading many examples of memoirs (focusing on topics and styles) before we choose our own memoir topic and style.
Below, please find the memoirs that we’re using as inspiration and/or models:
