This month during writers workshop, we will be focusing on writing realistic fiction. Students will draw from their past experiences in writing small moment stories. Some of the mini-lessons will involve descriptive writing, inventing characters in a small moment, creating exciting endings, using ellipses, working on spelling, using speech bubbles, stretching out a chapter from beginning to end, and of course, editing! Likely, this unit will extend into next month. I am looking forward to hearing how these stories evolve!
