I know, I know, I know. I had every intention of being a better blogger but that just didn't happen! Sorry friends.
I finished up my Christmas Writing mini-unit tonight. I think my kiddos are going to love this one.
I had a lot of fun making this one and I can't wait to use it next week with my class. I realized that I needed to take a step back after our Halloween writing so this week I'm focusing on several mini-lessons prior to our writing unit.
My class is really struggling with being descriptive writers and giving the reader enough details to make a good mental picture with. This week I'm going to focus on re-teaching mental images and using adjectives along with "Show Don't Tell".
What's going on in your classrooms?
