We had a busy week planning and beginning personal narrative drafts. Students looked through their journal writing to find a personal story to expand into a narrative essay. We started with a memory reflection and jotted down notes on a graphic organizer. This organizer was filled in with any all details that the student could give including using their senses to help with more detail descriptions.
In Reader's Workshop, we continued to focus on character traits and the details and people in a character's life that influence the character's actions. We continued our read aloud Wolf Hollow and began to question our main character about her decisions. Students also had a chance to write questions to the main character in their independent reading books.
