Language Arts 9/5-6

Hey everyone!  It’s the first post of the year!

Today we read our first vignette:  “Railroads” by EB White.  It is attached here:  Railroads EB White.  We used this vignette to discuss word choice.  Notes are here:  word choice.  Students also started their writer’s handbooks today, and got reading folders to keep all of their texts.

Next, I showed the picture book, My Map Book.  (I will have it in my classroom until we go to Tamarack if you’d like a peek.)  Then, students made three different maps in their writing journals.  These maps may have new ideas for vignette writing later.

Finally, students started on a reading and writing survey.  That can be found here:  Read-Write Survey

Reading and Writing Survey due Monday
Mango Street book order due Monday:  mango street order
