In Writing, we have begun to fill our Writing Journals with short true stories about our lives, inspired by many different things and people. While using Marshfield Dreams by Ralph Fletcher as a mentor text, we have explored what types of things we might put in our journal and how to write meaningful stories that answer the question: Who am I?
This past Friday you may have heard that I requested that everyone bring in a meaningful artifact from their life. We then practiced describing the artifact using clear details, so that the audience may picture it in their head. The next half of our writing was about how the object was meaningful to us and what the story is behind it. It was a lot of fun sharing out our artifacts with each other and I am excited to continue to practice and apply detailed writing in our Journals!
