with Michelle Cameron
We started out today by talking about our “red words” – and the kids brought some great ones in! We added them to our World Bank, which we’ll keep adding to – and use sometime in the future.
Several of the students brought in stories, either ones they’d started last week in class and finished at home or original stories. I reminded everyone about our rules for reading and critiquing. Some of the aspects of their stories that we commented on:
Finally, we wrote stories about how each treasure made their way into my treasure box. As usual, not everyone finished their stories, and I’ve asked them to finish them up during the week.
Our word bank should continue to grow. Since we couldn’t taste our objects, I asked them to bring in two “tasting” words. I have a feeling we’ll be hungry when we hear these next week!
