Top Ten

We will take some of our writings through the writing process this year. The steps are prewriting, rough draft, revise (organization and word choice), edit (punctuation, spelling and¬†capitalization), and final draft. The first project that we have taken through the writing process is “My Top Ten”. Our prewriting activity included reading Wallace’s Lists. We brainstormed that favorites might include such things as food, places, activities, animals, and people. We discussed our ideas with a classmate and then wrote our rough draft. I had a short editing conference with each child to correct spelling. The final drafts are hanging in the hallway.
