It was good to be back at Share today.  We learned a new dress-up today.  The dress-up is called the www.asia clause.  It actually represents using: when, while, where, as, since, if or although in a sentence.  Any of these words will work as long as it makes sense and is in the middle of the sentence. It is like using because or who/which in a sentence.  After discussing The Hobbit and filling out a book report, we finished class by working on outlines.

Highlight, circle, or underline keywords for 5 facts or ideas your want in your paragraph.  This will not be a line by line outlining.  You pick what interests you from the text to add to your (KWO), you do not have to add all of the information to your paragraph.  

  6. After you pick 5 facts or ideas begin your (KWO) key word outline by filling out your topic sentence and clincher sentence on workbook page 83.  Remember to use 1-3 key words on both lines that repeat or reflect.  Also, make sure that these introduce or give the reader an idea of the facts or thoughts that you are writing about in your paragraph.

  7. Finish your outline by using numbers 1-5 for the thoughts and ideas that you marked from the source text Neverland.

Day 2

  1. Write your rough draft using only your outline on page 83 and your checklist on page 86.

  2. Challenge yourself to add in your dress-ups: ly adverb, who/which clause, strong verb, and because clause as you write.

  3. Read over your paragraph to catch mistakes. Then have your editor check your paragraph. Make changes accordingly.

  4. Double check your checklist, paying close attention to banned words.

  5. Add in 2 vocabulary words for extra points.

  6. Finally, create your title using key words from your clincher sentence.

Day 3

  1. Write neatly or type your final draft.

  2. Double check your checklist. Mark and underline all of your dress-ups in the right margin: LY, W/W, SV, BC.

  3. Highlight your key words in your topic sentence, clincher sentence, and title.

  4. Make sure your name is on all of these papers and place them in order so they are ready to turn in.  Use your checklist to double check your order: checklist (86) on top, then final draft, followed by your rough draft and then outline (83).

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  Enjoy your family!
