What's Coming up?
Friday, February 5th-GROUP PICTURE DAY!
Feb 1-5 This is our last week working on persuasive writing. The following books are the mentor text we will use. Also this week, writers will choose a piece they have written to share with others. We will not be having a big "Publishing Party" this time. I hope to have one at the end of February. Our next writing will focus on the genre of Informational Text. This will also go well with our project work. Each ball group is using the Book Creator app to produce an informational book of their work.
