Writing Workshop

We started to take notes on Expository Writing last week. Expository Writing is to inform, describe, and/or explain something (tell why). There are three parts to expository writing, the introduction, the body, and the conclusion.

This week we are writing expository pieces related to the winter holidays.

Reader Workshop

We have been reading and studying poetry and even writing a little bit ourselves.
