In Treasures this week we are learning about How To Writings. Therefore, in honor of Halloween I decided to create a How To Writing based upon the story "Scaredy- Cat, Splat!" Today we read the story and discussed our topic in writing for the week. I explained to the students that we would be writing "How To Scare a Cat" based on the book. The kids loved it. In whole group today we discussed ways in the story the cats were scared and other options for how to scare a cat.
Above is my craftivity for a scaredy cat. We will create this on Friday to go along with our published final copy! (Check back for the template to create the cat)
Tomorrow, my students will complete a bubble map with the ideas they brainstormed.
Wednesday the students will begin working on their "Sloppy Copy". On Thursdays they can continue to work on their sloppy copies and I will revise their writing during this time. On Friday, my kids publish their writings and turn it in as well as create our scaredy cats!
Below is my example I showed my students today of my expectations for their published writing.
Also, today in class we estimated the seeds in a pumpkin. I had my students estimate the number of seeds and then write what the actual answer was afterwards. We were all off!
