The kids, posing as their favourite crayon, are writing friendly letters to the main character Duncan from The Day the Crayons Quit, thanking him for using them in a new and different way.
Students are also working on their personal journals writing about their favourite summer memories, what they are looking forward to this weekend and some are even extending their writing to their own pieces of fiction!
We also had a fun afternoon discussing the differences between fiction and non fiction books! Thank you to our models!
In reading we continue to build our reading stamina as we graph how long we are reading each day. These kids love to read!! In the next two weeks we will begin our guided reading groups.
