They've been listening to some great read alouds.
We created a Braid Beard Character Map today with the focus being on adjectives. After we made a class map, each made his/her own.
|Another 10 minute drawing and quick coloring!|
Our mini-lesson for writing was reviewing Focus Maps. We've learned that good writers pick a topic and focus in on one idea. We created a Pirate Focus Map and decided as a class we wanted to write an adventure story.
|Sooo MANY topics to write about. We needed to narrow it down!|
So far we have created a talking lead. Our main character is Pirate Death (creepy) who is on Pirate Island with a map looking for buried treasure.
I can't wait to see what they come up with tomorrow!!
