This week we focused on Narrative Writing. I always begin the year with direct instruction and then let the kids choose from their Heart Map.
I read Owen and we brainstormed a list of special objects. I modeled writing by sharing my special teddy bear my mom bought me when I was little. We've been working on writing an opening, middle, and wrap up sentence.
Here are a few examples.
I also have the kids write one opinion piece a week to review this form of writing. I read Fall Leaves Fall. We listed the seasons and brainstormed reasons we might like each one. Students picked one season, stated why they liked it, and wrote a wrap up sentence.
