Writing Focus:

Our writing focus is narrative. As we develop our writing skill in this genre, we are learning how to incorporate dialogue and figurative language into our writing. We are also focusing on being descriptive writers and showing the reader what is taking place in our narrative instead of simply telling the reader.
