In writing, students are working on final drafts and publishing of personal narratives. We will be having our publishing party with student author chair sittings this week! Students will also work on giving peer feedback using glow and grow strategy analyzing peer writing. They will be looking for elements of sensory details that create a "mind-movie" in the reader's imagination. Details include sound, feel, taste, touch, and smell which makes the personal narrative come alive for the reader. They will also be on the lookout for evidence of a moral, lesson, or change in the author based on the story. All are important elements of quality personal narrative writing. In vocabulary and spelling, we continue to learn new words weekly from our reading texts. We will also have another spelling and vocabulary test this Friday. Make sure your student studies his/her word cards!
