Fall feelings…

This week was cozy as we spent a lot of time drafting our stories. As you can probably tell, writing will take place over many days! It will be fun to start to edit our stories together to add new thoughts and change what was originally thought of as “perfect”. A first draft is never perfect. We will continue to work on using different sentences types in writing to keep our readers interested.

Enjoy the LLLOOONNNGGG weekend!

Our story continues…

We filled our week by learning about plot structure and identifying it in a variety of stories. From “Ghost of the Lagoon” to “Chillie”, we covered a ton of plot structures! I’m excited to start reading your “Ghost of the Lagoon” individual writing components to see what you thought of that story! I look forward to hearing more about your independent reading books through our reading conferences. But, before we do that… here are a few more puns for you to enjoy!

Week Two

This week we were busy with a variety of tasks. We filled the week with book talks, interest inventories, goal setting, and two types of creative writing. I appreciate the cooperative group work in all three of my block classes. I also am so excited to see what you shared with me through your writing!

So, we’ve made it to November!¬† This is a fabulous month for so many reasons.¬† Hopefully, you’ve found a lot of reasons to smile this month-besides ELA class.¬† ūüôā¬† We have been working on understanding different types of sentences and why authors use each type of sentence while writing. I know that I always appreciate a book more when I can understand the author’s word choices and the plot.
