5C students have been busy making their blogs a repository where they share their learning. One of the key components to blogging is making engaging and relevant posts. On Friday, students reviewed what makes a good post with Ms. Beabout, and then chose what they thought was their best post. They are in the process now on reflecting about what makes their blog post engaging and relevant.
5C has been busy working on their autobiographies in writing this week. To review how to write good leads, all Grade 5 classes met together, read mentor texts and generated ideas about strong leads. After students brainstormed about how to write effective leads, they met with writing partners from other classes to read the beginning of their stories and then hear feedback about how to improve them.
