Howdy! As time marches right along, here's what we're up to this coming week.
We are wrapping up the lessons on plot structure, and the kids should be able to explain what it is and how it applies to their realistic fiction texts. While taking a look at several stories, we'll be sequencing events and justifying why they belong on the "story mountain". Then we dive into using text evidence to answer questions about those stories.
Since we've spent some time collecting ideas to write about in our writer's notebooks, it's time to dive into composition. Using the steps of the writing process, we'll use complete sentences to compose a personal narrative that follows a typical story structure. Our quest to be authors commences!
Our tour with Tumbleweed Tonya of the Texas Regions has come to a close and now it's time to show what we know! We'll be writing a post card detailing our "visit" to our favorite region, and reviewing for our test on Thursday. They may use their notes on the test:).
