ELA - Students will use the rough narrative they wrote this week, and refine throughout the upcoming week, in hopes to develop a truly excellent narrative that would activate the most hesitant writer. It's going to be a fun week!
Monday: Bellwork. Day of the Dead Verb! Day One! Students will choose a weak verb such as is, was, am, are, look, had, have, or be to eliminate from their writing. Students will write a eulogy for this particular weak verb.
Tuesday: Bellwork. Day of the Dead Verb Burial. All students should wear somber colors to school. It will be a sad day as we go and bury our verbs. These verbs will never be allowed into our writing again.
Wednesday: Bellwork. Students will analyze the narratives they wrote last week for dead verbs, and learn how to construct stronger more concise sentences with active verbs.
Thursday: Bellwork. Students will hook their readers by designing fantastic beginnings to their narratives. Students will peer assess and revise the beginning of their narratives.
Friday: Checkpoint on commas and reading comprehension. Students refine the endings to their narratives, analyzing various ways to close their narrative.
All bellwork, writing assignments will be posted in Google Classroom.
***We will begin the new novels and STEM projects within the next two weeks.****
Patriot's Pen Writing Competition! Students are encouraged to enter the writing contest called, "Patriot's Pen". The top prize is $5,000. This is a national competition, and we would love for our students to contribute to it. They are all excellent writers! There will be information in regards to the contest on Google Classroom.
