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.
- Review writing non-negotiables or “must haves”
