Yesterday was the last day for my (3 ) 5th grade writing classes to finish bend 2 of opinion writing. It was also a new beginning for our first time participating in the Classroom Slice of Life Challenge! They were very excited. Unfortunately, many did not complete a slice, but they worked on one and that is a start. I planned to do it last year, but I was feeling a bit apprehensive. This year I decided to jump in and let us get our feet wet. I told my class, that there is nothing like getting positive comments about your writing.
Last week they chose their topics for their next opinion piece and there is plenty of excitement in the air.
