New to Work on Writing!
Throughout the school year we have had a couple of different choices to our Work on Writing choice during Daily 5. With the 90 minute reading block our writing portion has to be a response to a story type of writing. Today I introduced two new options to respond to a story during this choice. The first option is a "Character Profile" page. The student chooses a book from his/her book box and completes the chart using one or more of the characters from the book. The second choice the student is to pick a scene from the book and illustrate "All About the Setting". I modeled these two options using one of the weather books we read this week called Learn About Weather RAIN.
