We Want to Hook You In!

Boy, has it been wayyyyyy tooooo longggggg!  I find myself posting on Instagram or Facebook about exciting things that happen in my classroom, but I have been forgetting about my special place where I can share my thoughts, pictures, and not have to worry about limiting my characters!  :)

Today we worked on writing fabulous leads in Writing Workshop!  The kids want to HOOK YOU IN!  :)  I love watching these little writers blossom!  :)  Below are two of my favorite writing transformations!  I wrote in front of the kids last week (as I do every day!!!!), and today we went back to that piece.  We modified the lead sentence to my piece, and then the kids went back to their seats and picked one piece they wanted to make better, they brainstormed some different leads, and then they picked one they wanted to use.  Honestly, the kids did awesome for the first day!!  I will share more transformations once they happen in the next few days!  :)

Tomorrow, we will look at mentor texts that give us amazing leads!  I will post tomorrow to show you how that goes and give you some ideas!  :)

New Lead:  You are never going to believe this!  :)

New Lead:  Guess what!  :)
