Now that we have some basic writing skills, we are trying something new in writing. For this unit, I am letting the crew choose what genre they would like to write. Their choices are personal narrative, nonfiction books on animals or other topics, how-to books, or poetry. I will be providing mini-lessons for the students who choose to write a how-to book or poetry since we haven't studied those genres yet this year. Once we all have several new pieces of writing we will begin a new study on revising our writing. Students will revise any or all of their pieces to make them better.
Library day is tomorrow!
