We began DRAFTING our personal narratives today!
Drafting rules:
1. Write fast and furious. Get the whole story out of your head and onto the paper!
2. Write on every other line so we have some room for revisions!
3. Don't worry about erasing and using your best handwriting. That will happen on your final copy!
4. Writers are NEVER done! :)

Poetry Kick-off and Prowler Pride

On Friday we started poetry workshop. We put our first poem in our Poetry Anthologies. Some poems they put in there will be from me, some they will find in our poetry books, and others will be poems they write themselves. Check out some pics of us putting our first poem in, The Voice, by Shel Silverstein. Also, make sure you scroll way down to see the volleyball girls!

The 4 senior Prowler volleyball players came and talked with us for Prowler Pride! It was so awesome! Thanks ladies!

See you tomorrow,

Writers' Notebooks

Before we chose our topics for the Personal Narratives we are going to write, we worked very hard on "planting seeds" in our writers' notebooks. We made lists and wrote little snippets. For example we wrote about: special people, places and things, things we love, things that annoy us, things we are scared of, our best life events, worst life events, and other things that sparked memories in our lives. We also decorated the covers of our notebooks collage style to make them uniquely ours. 

Decorating our notebooks......

We also made a list in our notebooks of our hopes and dreams for 3rd grade. Then we picked one that our number one hope and dream for the year. We drew self-portraits to go along with our hopes and dreams.
