Side note…Writing

Just a quick note because I had the most awesome writing lesson today. We were working on recounts…familiar to any teachers out there? Our focus was using a hook and putting events in order.

The context: pretend you are a magnet. Recount your day. (Please note we are currently investigating magnetism and trying out magnets).

The students got so excited about the topic. They planned verbally. We went through what made a hook & briefly touched on time connectives. There was fantastic language. This is a context I will use again.
