Learning Target: Great writers can learn from finished texts by imagining strategies the writers used.
In Class: Today we will analyze Ai's personal narrative in order to construct a list of strategies that expert writers use to create powerful personal narratives. We will focus on two strategies: writing about small moment stories and using specific dialogue and detail.
This year we are lucky enough to have a class set of CHROMEBOOKS!! We are going to use Google Classroom as our writer's notebooks. Today we will practice signing into google, joining the google classroom and opening our first writing post. Students will not have much time to work on their 12 minute small moment story but will have time to finish on Thursday.
On Monday, those that finished their pretests early started on an All About Me Google Slides activity. This activity will not be due till later this week, possibly next week. It is a get to know you activity that allows students to become more familiar with Google and their Chromebooks.
Tomorrow we will go to the library for our first library check out.
