We are currently focusing on the narrative essay. This week we looked at writing dialogue. The primary focus? Students are to: use quotation marks to set off what a character is saying; create a new paragraph each time a different character speaks; attribution (tell the reader who is speaking).
Other things we accomplished this week:
In an effort to be better organized, each student created a binder to be kept in the classroom.
Parent Teacher Conferences – Thank you to all the students and parents who came!
No school on Tuesday.
- Vocabulary Chapter 9 Quiz
- Vocabulary Chapter 10 – Definitions and Sentences
- Writing Prompts:
- How I keep track of important things.
- Tell me about your day off.
Students worked together in groups of two or three to create a dialogue between themselves and their partners. If students did not finish this in class, they may be calling/texting this weekend.
