Middle School Language Arts, October 2017

We’re getting back into the swing of things in the middle school reading and writing workshop.  We are finishing up our first published piece, a personal narrative.  Students wrote a small moment narrative, and worked hard at developing the “so what” of the story.  They filled their writing with thoughts and feelings, and descriptive details.  […]
