Students are finishing up their comparative writing paragraphs this week and they've done an incredible job. The boys and girls were asked to compare the two characters from the mini-story below.
As each child completes their paragraph and checklist, we have a little conference and review their work together. It's incredible to watch the growth in their writing over the course of the year together. Watching them implement feedback and add new words from their own reading and experiences is so, so exciting.
Please have a look at the high-quality work below and you'll see what I'm talking about. I cannot wait to conference with the rest of my class in the coming days. Congratulations to all the boys and girls in room 208, your work is a pleasure to read! You do everything right: you're work is neat and easy to read, you add funny and interesting details and your writing consistently evokes a response from the reader!
|Even the artwork is great!|
|Thanks to cookie-jar Charlie for covering up my students' names!|
Here's some of the great work from a recent "Morning Work" page. This particular paragraph helps get our mind ready for persuasive writing, which comes next.
