They will be gathering their story ideas and learning how to think about what small moment they want to share. We will be reviewing the writing process steps to help get them started. They will have the opportunity to use various writing plans to assist them in getting their ideas organized before they begin their masterpiece.We are getting ready to finish up our September writing journal. The children have been doing a wonderful job stretching out their writing and adding support to their thinking.
