Hey 6th graders,
You know it is just like me to spoil a great day with an assignment, but I just have to do it!!! Halloween was fun today. You got to do a lot of unique things at school. You got to make pumpkin pie, study in the boys' dorm, carve pumpkins, wear costumes AND go trick or treating in school AND go on a cool field trip to the arboretum. Just like last time, select ONE part of today and write about it. You did such an awesome job writing last time that I can't wait to see this blogs' comments. Remember all we are learning in writer's workshop. There's show not tell writing and literary techniques. Since it is a holiday, I won't be quite as demanding as last time. I think about 8 sentences would be enough. However, if you want to write more, please do. Remember pick one small thing we did and tell me lots about it. This is not due for an entire week ( and two weekends). Blogs must be finished by Monday, November 12. Thanks 6th graders. I promise we will take a break after this. Happy Halloween and happy writing. Impress me just li
Hey 6th Graders,
I haven't had you do any blogging yet this year. I think it is definitely time for our first blog assignment. Here it is: Please select one thing that we have done so far this year in 6th grade and write about it! Remember to think about how you select an IDEA for writing. I know you all loved the camping trip, but writing about the whole trip would be "grocery list" writing. Maybe, you would write about setting up your tent OR climbing the fire tower. Pick something you enjoyed and really describe it for me! Your entry should be very detailed. Think about writing at around 10 good sentences. This blog is due on Friday, October 26th. Have fun. Do a great job!
