Reading: We started to read a new realistic fiction story about scavenger hunt.
Writing: We talked about how to make a list during prewriting. One way is to make a list of the people, places, and plot of the story. Those are the three main ingredients of any story. Students also worked on their prewriting. A personal narrative is due Friday, October 12. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.
