Writers at Work!

So this afternoon, the boys and girls received their "Happy" paragraphs back. 

Each child received a feedback letter from me as well. The expectation is that students will implement the feedback while working on their "What does Mrs. Claus do on Christmas Eve?" paragraph.  

I provided each child with a specific next step and I'm looking forward to reading these next paragraphs. In many cases, children were asked to really focus on details. Not just details for the sake of details, but adding information about the subject (e.g. if you talk about your dog, share the name and breed). 

Since this is a description of Mrs. Claus' night, we're going to use transitional words. After reviewing the anchor chart pictured below the kids were off!
