This month the 5th graders are working on Argumentative essays cross-curricular with their Language Arts. They will be reading an article from Scope magazine entitled “Should You Go Trash-Free at Lunch?” and then choose a side to argue. They will gather information from the article to support their opinion. They will also acknowledge the other side and state that in the essay. They will then create their thesis, write their hook for the beginning of their essay and then summarize the article. Lastly, from this information and these steps, they will write their Argumentative Essay. I am looking forward to them sharing their essays with me.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Thank you!
