Both classes were involved in an ongoing writing workshop; first they identified small moments in their own lives that were important to share. Students were encouraged to zoom in on their 'seed stories' and 'show' the step by step events of the story. The children worked hard to incorporate skills and techniques learned in their mini lessons into their own writing. Students revised and edited their work many times to complete a polished personal narrative to share. 4J and 5N thank Ms. Lamarche, Ms. Ritchie, Mrs. Cook and Ms. Boult for lending their writing expertise on the celebration day and the parents for providing snacks.
