What excitement at the end of the day today. It was realized that one member of our class, Parkbom, was chosen to be highlighted on the 100 Word Challenge website for her week 3 writing piece. This website is being read all around the world by students and teachers (as well as parents). A huge congratulations to her as this is quite an accomplishment. There were 665 students who published last week so to be chosen in the showcase piece is amazing. This is the link to her piece : Week #3 if you wish to read it. For all of the other Division 1 students' work please click here: MrsMiddletonsClass. It is very motivating to not only write for an audience but also to have your writing highlighted. Students are also receiving comments from others, specifically teachers, which will help them grow as writers.
1) LA - 100 Word Challenge - Write draft 1 tonight in your writing exercise books. To see the image and instructions for this week please go to the tab at the top of this page called Sharing Our Learning. Under that tab you will find the100WC section. Each week I will link the picture or phrase that our writing will be based on here. Have your piece ready for feedback and revision tomorrow.
2) Make a comment - it is expected that every day you will make a comment on the website regarding your learning of the day. Sometimes I will post a question for you to respond to but often times you will decide on your own what you wish to comment on. Today, it might be on your I Am poems: how you are doing, what you like/enjoy, what you find challenging. Maybe you want to share your ideas for this week's challenge. Maybe you want to share thoughts on a book you are reading. Maybe you want to share about something extraordinaty that occured today. Your choice but be thoughtful and know that many are reading our site so make it polished.
