Language Arts Week 2


We are going to jump back into writing for non-fiction this week with a writing activity about our communities and neighborhoods. We will be using information that we gather and brainstorm in social studies in order to write our first non-fiction paragraph of the year. This will serve as our “pre-test” of sorts for writing, as well as act as a review of the writing “non-negotiables” and the paragraph diagram.

Check back soon for a downloadable copy of the paragraph diagram.

The Details

  • Review writing non-negotiables or “must haves”
  • Brainstorm community assets for (social studies) neighborhood maps
  • Paragraph diagrams
  • Paragraph “pre-test”
