Crazy Fan Moment
Miss. Meisner HAD to get a picture with Kirby Larson
So many amazing men and women were honored at our annual Veteran's Day celebration. It is such a beautiful thing and Hamilton Elementary is amazing for putting it on.
Lessons from Kirby Larson
Kirby Larson had to revise and edit the story of Nubs 31 times! This teaches us how important it is to go back to fix our writing.. Even big authors have to do it!
My heart was pounding hard as I took off my shoe and hitched up my baggy sock"
We then discussed how the author could have just said "I tried on the shoes" but she chose to elaborate. The author did this to help the reader imagine and envision this moment. As writers we are trying to mimic this kind of writing. We are really working on expanding those important moments of our personal narratives to help our readers envision what is happening.
We will be wrapping up this small moment unit next week and beginning How-To writing when we get back after Thanksgiving Break.
