Writing Weekly: Writing Lab News

Third and Fourth Grade Students

Big picture

This week in the Writing Lab

Third and Fourth Grade students worked from home this week on the Writable program. The focus for this week was to integrate writing with Social Studies and Science.

Third grade students had to describe an animal, but not give the name! The description should be so thorough that I can guess it without the student naming the animal! Have your child check back on this assignment to see if my guess is CORRECT!

Fourth grade students watched a School House Rock on the branches of the government. Then, they wrote a paragraph describing each of the three branches.

If your student hasn't finished their Writable assignment, it is not too late! You have until Friday!

If your student did not complete their narrative, opinion or Informational writing which we started at school, they can finish this assignment also.
