Writing Update

posted Dec 26, 2016, 11:18 AM by Rebecca Tapley
We read some excellent poetry this week, including Bad Day by Kay Ryan, an excerpt from Song of the Broad-Axe by Walt Whitman, and Primer by Rita Dove. We also put a focus on editing, putting proper punctuation and capitalization into a piece of writing that Mrs. Tapley wrote. We also began exploring the grammar activities available on Khan Academy, which was very engaging for the students. Our writers group with Ellen Booraem continued, with pieces that broke our hearts in one moment and made us laugh in another.
