Setting Sail, Day 3
We started off today by sharing our holiday words. Looks like everyone’s ready for the holiday season!
Then we listened to two stories students brought in – both of which were finished. It’s a delight to see them so excited about having a beginning, middle, and end to their stories!
This is going to be a pretty short recap, as the kids are immersed in their voyages and are making progress at different rates. Many of them have already arrived at their destination and spent some time “seeing” what was there and writing about it. Each one has a “postcard” that they are supposed to illustrate – they took those home with them. For homework this week, please ask them to finish wherever they are – whether that be still in their Captain’s Logs or in the report of what they find at their destination. Have they achieved what they set out on this journey to achieve? Why or why not?
They voted and agreed – unanimously and with much arm waving! – to continue their journeys next week. We’ll definitely be bringing them to a close then. And since we are on a journey, this week’s words are travel or transportation words.
