Making a List

During our whole group writing time today, we created a class list. The title of our list was "Places We Can Fly a Kite". We talked about how when you write a list the words do not have to be in a complete sentence. You only have to write one or two words in order for you to understand what it is you were writing. Examples of lists were grocery lists, to-do lists and the lists we wrote on our Daily 5 I-Charts. The class took turns coming up to the chart, writing their "dot" and the place they thought of to fly a kite. We focused on being specific when describing where we could fly the kite instead of just saying "outside" we wanted to use details in our explanation.
