Week 23

The next 2 weeks, we will move into expository writing using our chosen biographies as the subject.  Students will also write an expository news story about a historic event. Through instruction on the news story structure and investigations of sample news stories, students will understand the critical components of a news story, so that they can write their own informational news article on a selected research topic.  Creatively, we will work on writing limericks with Leprechauns as the main subject.

***The students and I would love any donations of gently used newspapers  and magazines to use in the classroom.***

***If you are willing and able to donate, we are out of Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer, too.  Please help us stay healthy and clean!!***
