In Writing Workshop we wrote out Halloween trick or treating. We talking about the importance of making a setting in our illustrations, and adding interesting words such as talking bubbles with "boo" in them or using words like "spooky" to add interest to our story. We shared some of our stories and thought about all the things we are doing as writers that we didn't do when we started kindergarten. Lots of hard work today in writing!
We began to learn about the Design Process we will be using this week for a couple special projects. We learned about the word engineering. We know as Word Birds we need to use the word in our writing and speaking, and to find examples so we can better understand the word. We watched this short clip that shows an example of engineering, although it didn't have the expected result!
