The campers have published an opinion writing piece on one of their favorite books. The students worked hard to hook their reader with a juicy introduction, to write about their favorite part, picture, character or lesson to support their opinion about their book, and to include a powerful ending by telling their reader to go do something. The campers will be sharing this piece of writing with their grandparent(s) or special grand-freind(s) and with their parent(s) at our learning celebration! I am so proud of the writing they continue to produce!
Character Series Poster
The students collected stop and jots as they read multiple books on a character through a character series such as Cam Jansen, A-Z Mysteries, Stink, etc. The stop and jots included character traits and the evidence from their book to support the character trait. At the end of the series, students looked to see what five character traits popped up most often in their reading. Students then created character posters including the five character traits and a favorite stop and jot that they wrote.
