Novel Writing Project 2018

The final piece of the 3rd Marking Period will be our final fiction project of the year. Students will write and publish a novel. Each student will write their own novel, with a word goal minimum of 1,000-4,000 words, based on their reading level (each student’s minimum writing goal is equal to their reading level multiplied by 500). The novels will be written in Google Docs (docs.google.com) to make use of the word count feature. Final novels will be uploaded to Lulu.com and published as paperback books, which can be purchased for reasonable prices. So yes, students will actually write and publish their own novels. This project is based on the National Novel Writing Month Young Writers program.

Math: Students worked on breaking apart large division problems by place value. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We started an experiment to find electrical conductors and insulators.

Social Studies: We had our Green Day contest and researched St. Patrick.
