Writing: Revising & Editing 

Writer’s you are all so close to publishing! Today you will take the time to review what you have written (and typed in a doc in your writing folder). Revision is about making changes to your story to make it better and Editing is about spelling and the mechanics of writing. It is helpful to have a partner or two to work with at this point to ask for their feedback and get their help with spelling & punctuation. 

READING – Fantasy Book Clubs

Remember to have 1 cover  uploaded to your padlet and write across all of the columns, not just one column.  Also, it is important not to report but to think deeply about your book.  If one person reports something (for example character names) , then you should add to the post your thoughts and text evidence to support your thinking about those characters. Please email me when you need a new padlet for your group.

Everyone in the group should not repeat the setting/problem/solution:

  • Think about why the author chose the setting/problem/solution?
  • How did these elements affect your characters?
  • Why are these elements important?

Add on to your partners posts and either agree or disagree, but provide more text evidence in your thinking. Your posts should reflect 15-20 minutes of thinking to receive excellent participation credit. 

Cursive: Capital N and M (pp 95-96)

You can use your handwriting workbook to complete this work.  Please take a picture and insert it in your June elearning slideshow. Please watch the two videos to help with your formation of capital N and M. You may need to watch the videos more than once and then skywrite. Complete workbook pages pp 95-96.

Writing: Paying attention to the middle

Third grade writer’s today’s work is all about the details. You will be reaching back into prior lessons, using mentor texts, and Pixar videos. All that you have been learning to do as a writer, will be put to use today. There is nothing to hand in today, however you should be starting to type your story (or ask someone to help you type) as it is easier to share with classmates that way. We will be publishing next week! Wahoo!

  • Watch the introductory video
  • Review any prior lessons if needed
  • Write the middle of your story, paying close attention to the details
  • Type your story (or ask someone to help you)

Slides are in your writing folder too: Imaginative Narrative #8 Slides

Watch this video before you write today: Imaginative Narrative Part 5

 

READ: PADLET DAY~ Read your fantasy book for 20-30 minutes

Remember to have 1 cover  uploaded to your padlet and write across all of the columns, not just one column.  Also, it is important not to report but to think deeply about your book.  If one person reports something (for example character names) , then you should add to the post your thoughts and text evidence to support your thinking about those characters. 

Everyone in the group should not repeat the setting:

  • Think about why the author chose the setting?
  • How does the setting affect your characters?
  • Why is the setting important?

When listing the problems, the same is true. Don’t repeat the same problem your club members already posted. Instead add on to your partners posts and either agree or disagree, but provide more text evidence in your thinking. Your posts should reflect 15-20 minutes of thinking to receive excellent participation credit.
