This week we studied Word Choice in our writing. We realized words can engage us in an author's writing.
We read the book A Leaf Can Be... by Laura Purdie Salas. We noticed how Laura did not say, "The giraffe eats leaves." Rather, she says, "Leaves can be a mouth filler."
We used this inspiring book to write about our own topic of choice. We put our words in poetry format. One poem came out like this:
Owls in the Forest
Owls can be
cool like a panda
amazing like a unicorn
eating fruit like a zebra
living in trees like a monkey
A few students even created inferences for their poems! We are working hard on learning and applying strategies to our writing!
What have we learned?
