This week, we wrapped up our lab report writing unit to start something new:
We will be writing gripping fictional stories! We are so excited to embark on a very imaginative writing journey, and to start, we began creating a class book based on a gripping series we already know and love-- The Crayons Picture Books written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers!
Our book will be called The Day The Crayons Came Back To School! We brainstormed a list of all the places where our crayons could be writing to us from, and after we each picked a crayon from a fresh 24-pack, we got to work. Here are the beginnings of our postcards:
We are already off to an amazing start, and we cannot wait to make our amazing postcards even better by editing, revising, and adding more detail. Stay tuned!
