A Scary Story Kind of Week…


scary stories 1Although Halloween is over, scary stories are still going to be in full force this week.  Today the planning page was completed and the rough draft started. Tomorrow the agenda calls for finishing the rough draft, reviewing transitions, and descriptive word choice. Wednesday the stories will be revised and edited, both individually and with peers and the flyer that goes with the story will be explained. Thursday there will be more work on the story and flyer and all will be due Friday. On Friday everything needs to be finished and ready to turn in. This sounds like a lot of work and this will only be part of the block each day. Busy, busy, busy…
