Welcome! We are doing a lot of fun activities in our Language Arts class year!
Our first writing assignment was an "Introducing Me!" essay.
Students wrote a five paragraph essay that started with an introduction, followed with 3 supporting paragraphs and ended with a conclusion.
Once the essays were written, our class visited the computer lab. Using Microsoft Word, students typed in their essays. Finally, the students chose a clipart and inserted it onto their document.
To conclude our assignment, students were allowed to present their essays. To prepare the presentation, many chose to bring items to show during the oral reading.
I found this activity interesting because I discovered the my hobbies/interests of my students. It also allowed me to see the quality of writers that I will be working with this year.
Our next activity will be a process writing paper. It will be called "How I eat an Oreo cookie!" Should be interesting and mouthwatering!
Looking forward to a productive year!
