Week of October 30, 2017
The students are beginning their first, major writing assignment - a personal narrative. To check in, ask your student what is the difference between a personal narrative and a short story?
Today, the students chose a topic for their essays. We went through the brainstorming process, chose a topic to write about and started a memory map.
10-31 Writing the hook to the story (HAPPY HALLOWEEN)
11-1 Establishing the incident, response and reflection (8th grade PSAT)
11-2 Drafting the essay
11-3 Independent reading day - Please remind your students to read for 30 minutes a night and to bring their independent reading book on Friday!!!
Homework for this week will be an extension of class activities.
