Word Choice

 

Other ways to say "said"

Students are trying to think carefully about the words that they use in their writing.  They are working on painting a picture in the reader's head and finding new words to replace our old, boring, regular words.

 

ex. stroll instead of walk.

 

We are learning to use a thesaurus to broaden our vocabulary in writing.

 

Voice

Students are working on adding personality and style to their writing by expanding their voice. Its a way to allow the writer's personality to come through the writing.  It is a combination of feeling, style and connection.

 

 

Lesson 1:

 Read Students the book "Hey, Little Ant" by Philip and Hannah Hoose

It's a story about a kid who is a bout to squish an ant but the ant is trying to convince him not to do it with good convincing arguments.

  •      Student will then write their own stories with dual personalities trying to convince the reader to be on their side.

 

Lesson 2:

Fairy Tale Character court case

  • We are going to take that big bad wolf to court where he will try to defend himself against the three little pigs.  Who will the jury side with??

 

Lesson 3:

Write an article for Fairy Tale News (a tabloid filled with the dirt on our favorite characters)

     ex. Frog Prince admits to smashing house of straw.

 

Lesson 4:

Write your own fractured fairy tale

  • Students will take the theme from their favorite fairy tale and give it a little twist.
