All work done in class, from this point on, will count towards Term 2. It is a new term and a new beginning.
In terms of Language, we are going to be working on a couple of forms of writing:
1. Continuing on the narrative piece with the Harris Burdick illustrations. So far, the students should
have completed this as an initial exercise tp get them thinking.
In terms of the actual practice of writing, I asked the students to take a shot at writing a narrative paragraph. This is not graded: it is only feedback with some feedback. This paragraph was assigned last Friday, yet I only have 5 completed copies. So, here is a student sample, along with a sample I did:
They are only drafts. I am sure my example could use some improvement.
- complete the 5ws and H for the Harris Burdick illustration
- complete the narrative paragraph (15 more are needed!)
- graphic organizer to set up narrative paragraph
