Mrs. Broadnax's Bulletin
March 10, 2014
We have read a bunch of historical fiction that goes with the Revolutionary War. Obviously, it's my favorite. We are going to begin George Washington Socks this coming week. Please look for the book to be coming home because students will be reading it at home and at school.
We will continue with personal narrative and work on telling "small moment" stories. We will be discussing author's craft (writing hooks, endings, keeping small moments small, etc.).
