Statue of Liberty Writing

Tuesday, March 11, 2014
My students are getting really good at writing 5 sentence paragraphs, especially about nonfiction topics.  We've been learning about US symbols and of course I had them write. 

 We did one writing about the Statue of Liberty.  We read a couple of books about the statue and watched a Brainpopjr. video about the statue.

We then made an anchor chart listing things we knew about the Statue of Liberty.

{visualize the anchor chart here since 
I forgot to take a picture}

We then did our writing and we displayed a craft with our writing that I got from Deanna Jump's America Math and Literacy Fun.

(notice in the picture above - she added a 6th sentence to her writing.  :)

Happy Teaching!
