Today we continued working on our pirate story. It's getting quite exciting. Our mini-lesson today was good writers answer the 5 W's.
I made each of them their own hand with a heart on the palm to remind them to always write about something that is near and dear to their heart. The 5 W's are listed so kids can use it as a reference when they go to their writing.
As for our pirate story...We have added more! Pirate Death found a treasure map on a broken boat with skeletons! They decided to set out on Pirate Island at midnight when there was a full moon. The pirates are looking for one magic gem. The kids want them to find it on a volcano in the lava.
