Class activities for Tuesday, January 12

Spelling: Today was our class spelling bee. Congratulations to Skylar and Connor H., our class finalists!

Cursive: Cursive pages 40-42 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: None today due to our class spelling bee.

Writing: Today we talked about writing complete scenes. A fully developed scene has some talking, some action, and some visual details, and those details are used over and over. For example, a scene might start with talking, the some action, then more talking, a visual detail, then more action, then talking, then more action, then a visual detail. All three details should be present. For our current project, each page is like a scene and should have all three kinds of details.

Our current writing project is a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students are writing a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at See below for more details.

This project is due Friday, January 22. Students should drafting at this point. Get some ideas below or right here. Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes.
