Non-ficiton writing can be tricky. Students spent their time today developing clear topic, supporting, and detail sentences. Specifically, however, they worked on organizing and sorting sentences within a paragraph in a way that makes sense logically and that keeps the reader engaged. Although it can be difficult, the students are doing great!
Tomorrow will be an important day as we work with the students around digital citizenship and proper behavior on the internet. We will also be working with students to develop strategies about reading online information and determining its validity.
Question of the day:
What is the topic sentence in the red paragraph above?
What is the clincher?
