Writing Workshop

    In addition to journal entries, the students have been writing personal narratives and friendly letters.  As the year progresses, students will be expected to spend more time on each phase of the writing process - planning, drafting, revising, and editing their work.  (They have been learning common proofreading symbols to help them with the editing process.) Our focus these next few weeks will be on using transition words and phrases, separating ideas into paragraphs, and choosing words that are interesting and descriptive.  Of course, learning proper grammar and spelling will be ongoing!
