This week the students will complete their Fictional short story. They were to write a fictional story and fully develop the characters and the plot. There were also to include a conflict and resolution and at least five of the ten homophones listed on their rubric. I am looking forward to reading these stories!
They will also begin their letter to an author for the Letters About Literature contest and work on this during their Writing Workshop time. The students will type a personal letter to an author, living or dead, explaining how that author’s work somehow changed their view of the world or self. It will need to be between 450-1000 words and they have a rubric to follow for clarification. This letter will be due in December and the students are very excited about this writing project!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
