Make Way for the CHO-HAWK!!!!
Planning Our Writing
For example (working from LARGEST, outer ring into the center bullseye of the target): vacation >>> Disney World >>> Magic Kingdom >>> awesome rides >>> Big Thunder Mountain >>> rushing down the hill and hitting an automatic side turn (TARGET TINY MOMENT)
Students use the outer rings as their introduction sentence(s). Then, they plan multiple paragraphs of details about the tiny moment in the center of the target. This week we practice using either beginning/middle/end -or- see/hear/feel for our detail paragraphs to describe our tiny moment topics. We're working on editing, revising, and publishing in this coming week!
Modeling GREAT Reading Behaviors
Lucas Had a TON of Fun Modeling How
NOT To act when reading to Self ;-)
Exploring THEME in Literature:
Our Current theme is IDENTITY
Below you'll see photos of us adding to our Interactive Reading Notebooks. Students added notes about THEME and CHARACTER TRAITS. They will add details to these learning scrapbook pages as we learn more about the two topics and are encouraged to reference this notebook throughout the year as they complete literature work.
