Mrs. Wolfe's Class
This I Believe
Our unit standard is audience, purpose, and tone. The kids have been very busy browsing the "This I Believe" website, being inspired by the background and philosophy of Dr. Ben Carson, and reflecting and writing about their own personal beliefs. Let me tell you...we have a classroom full of young authors! The essays they have been creating are fabulous! I cannot wait to read the final drafts which are due on Monday.
Next week, we will be turning our This I Believe essays into children's books! Their focus will be to understand how their ideas change as they are challenged to write for a much younger audience.
We will also begin reading and analyzing Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.
