Writing

Writing is a skill that holds a very important role in our classroom.  Whether it is a formal assignment or a fun writing prompt, we will be writing a lot this school year!  We will be improving our skills in writing various formal styles (narrative, expository, persuasive, and descriptive), practicing the writing process (prewrite, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing), and participating in daily writing prompts.  Students will be encouraged to share their writing as well as offer classmates feedback through identifying what they did well as well as constructive criticism.  We will be keeping writing portfolios in our classroom, so please send your student with a 3-ring binder and some page projectors.  These portfolios were a highlight for students last year, as they loved seeing their progress throughout the school year.  You are always welcome to visit and look at all of their hard work!
