Mini Lesson: Students will have a quick, ten minute lesson on ways to improve their writing. Independent Writing: Students will go write using what they have learned. Teachers will confer or pull a small objective group to check on progress. We will be writing narratives, essays, how to’s and persuasive writing. Celebrate: Children repeat what is celebrated! We will be celebrating good writing throughout the year! SOCIAL STUDIES MRS. ESHBAUGH * MRS. JOHNSON * MS. COOPER * MRS.
