How to add sparkle and more detail to your writing!

The boys and girls are currently working on a writing assignment called "What does Mrs. Claus do on Christmas Eve?" 

The expectation is that they will use their feedback from their "Happy" paragraphs to make this writing assignment their best yet!

We are talking about how to add more sparkle, voice and personality to our writing. We watched this little video I created so the boys and girls would know just what I'm talking about, and exactly what I mean when I ask them for more detail, personality, sparkle, etc. 

We're going to continue to look at samples like the one in the video for the next few days to make sure everyone feels confident with this.
